Texas welfare rates decline

In spite of the struggling national economy, Texas actually saw a decrease in the number of welfare cases.

Texas is one of eighteen states to see a drop, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Welfare recipients dropped by 15 percent in the Lone Star State due in part to job placement programs and a fixed federal funding amount.

The national welfare program could be expanded if the stimulus bill is passed.
