(a) For purposes of this section, “self-sufficiency measurement” means a calculation of the income an employed adult may need to meet family needs, including, but not limited to, housing, food, day care, transportation and medical costs.
(b) Not later than January 1, 1999, the Office of Policy and Management shall contract with a private vendor to develop a self-sufficiency measurement by October 1, 1999. This measurement shall take into account geographical variations in costs and the age and number of children in the family. The value of any state or federal public assistance benefit received by a recipient of temporary family assistance shall be calculated into such recipient's self-sufficiency measurement.
(c) Not later than October 31, 1999, the Office of Policy and Management shall distribute the self-sufficiency measurement to all state agencies that counsel individuals who are seeking education, training or employment. Effective October 31, 1999, the Office of Policy and Management may also distribute the self-sufficiency measurement to any other entity that requests such measurement. Such state agencies and other entities may use the self-sufficiency measurement to assist and guide individuals who are seeking education, training or employment in establishing personal financial goals and estimating the amount of income such individuals may need to support their families.
(d) The self-sufficiency measurement shall not be used to: (1) Analyze the success or failure of any program; (2) determine or establish eligibility or benefit levels for any state or federal public assistance program, including, but not limited to, temporary family assistance, child care assistance, medical assistance, state-administered general assistance, supplemental nutrition assistance or eligibility for the HUSKY Health program; (3) determine whether a person subject to time-limited benefits under the temporary family assistance program qualifies for an extension of benefits under such program; or (4) supplement the amount of benefits awarded under the temporary family assistance program.
No county shall have the power to pay out of its general funds or otherwise contribute any part of the costs of acquiring a project and shall not have the power to use land already owned by the county, or in which the county has an equity, for construction thereon of a project or any part thereof, unless the county is fully reimbursed for the value of the land as may be determined by a current appraisal, or unless the county leases the land at an annual rental fee of not less than five percent of the appraised value. The entire cost of acquiring any project must be paid out of the proceeds from the sale of bonds issued under the authority of the County Pollution Control Revenue Bond Act; provided, that this provision shall not be construed to prevent a county from accepting donations of property to be used as a part of any project or money to be used for defraying any part of the cost of any project.
