Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) was named the top Republican, or ranking member, of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Worker & Family Support, which has jurisdiction over programs aimed at helping workers, children, and families thrive. The panel, previously called the Subcommittee on Human Resources, authorizes and oversees a wide range of programs and services, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the Social Services Block Grant, the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program, the Maternal, Infant, and early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program, child and family services, and foster care and adoption. Walorski will also serve as a member of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight.
