Press Herald Op-Ed Cites Butler’s TANF Study

A Portland Press Herald opinion piece by Mike Tipping titled “Once LePage showed compassion, now all he does is urge cuts,” cites a study by Sandra Butler, a University of Maine social work professor. Butler’s study, “TANF Time Limits and Maine Families: Consequences of Withdrawing the Safety Net,” found 39 percent of the 16,000 people who lost Temporary Assistance for Needy Families because of new time limits have a work-limiting disability and 26 percent have a child with a disability.
