I haven't done much research on this particular Obama decision yet, besides reading this article but I do like the idea of more welfare authority being put to the states.

The big question I have, which if you know the answer please respond, is with this decision, do states immediately have the rights to reinforce all work related requirements to giving welfare and maintain the status quo? If so, then I'm glad Obama released this responsibility to the states. If not, then what can states actually tinker with in determining the best welfare programs?
