Senator CHERRY (5:39 PM) —The Democrats will be supporting this amendment. We believe that what we are talking about here is bad law, and merely reviewing a bad law, in terms of imposing activity testing requirements on sole parents, does not lessen its impact. But we will support a review, as we would prefer that the information came forward to ensure that we can look at ameliorating this law in the future. Having the information might at least ensure that we can prevent unfairness being multiplied.

Question agreed to.
