For a part-time legislature, they spend a lot of time passing resolutions and
such. What actual state work was done while they were in session?
It has been, and continues to be, a good system, serving those in need.

The Welfare Program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints is really
an outstanding example of leadership, of ingenuity and of social reform. With
this program, dignity and self respect have been preserved for an incredible
number of families who have fallen on hard times, and it has been the means of
lifting many tens of thousands additional individuals from depression and other
side effects of unemployment and hard knocks. In this program you see caring,
you see renewed opportunity, you see quality food production, and you see self
respect thriving. A great burden is lifted from the government and from these
families.There is still some abuse of the system, which some
individuals feel is their right, but for the most part, this is a true program
from our maker, with blessings for all who participate.
