Although the 1963 County Grand Jury declared that the San Bernardino county Welfare department is exceedingly well managed, it expressed great concern over the rapidly increasing welfare costs. Three Rcdlanders were on the Grand Jury committee which studied the Welfare department. Cyril .\. Barnes was chairman, Virgii L. Luke was co-chairman and Mrs. Frank E. Moore was a committee member. Here is the report on the department, which is headed by Boscoe Lyda: FINDINGS: 1. This department is exceed- inly well managed and is operated as efficiently and economically as is possible under existing state laws. Nevertheless, the State Welfare Program demands the close scrutiny and thoughtful consideration of every citizen if we are to avoid creation of a Welfare State. The County Welfare Department spent S28,910,389.00 of taxpayers' money during the last fiscal year and employed a staff of 337 persons. Both are due for sharp increases based on certain new Public Welfare laws passed during the 1963 state legislature, AB59 being outstanding among them. This Grand Jury and others took positive action to protest passage of AB59 by contacting our local legislators and personal contact wth the Governor. Protests of this and other Grand Juries were ignored and the bill is now law, 2. Under ANC alone it is estimated that the new program will increase the annual cost in this country by approximately $2,160,(K)0 for direct payments plus an additional $^5,200 in salaries for welfare workers. This money must come from tax money, whether county, state or federal taxes. 3. There can be no doubt that actual violation of the regulations now exist With the new laws the door is opened wide to many more. This Grand Jury views the situation with great concern and urges that all taxpayers carefully weigh the effect of the new law, which liberalizes welfare aid, on the public economy through resultant increase in taxes whether it be county, state or federal. Since the funds for Public Welfare come from the tax-payer's pocket, they should familiarize themselves with the provisions of A639. It should be noted that this Grand Jury, the County Board of Supervisors and other knowledgeable public agencies recommended against passage of AB59. 4. It has often been stated by proponents of laws liberalizing governmental hand-outs that the problems of the p(>or, the hungry, the sick, the blind, the aged, crippled and homeless are not taken into consideration. Tliis Grand Jury wishes to stale most vigorously that we are in complete sympathy with all truly eUgible, deserving persons. We do however strenuous ly object to governmental ha.id-outs which destroy the in hercnt incentive for citizens of this stale to better themselves 5. It must be noted that other California Counties have found themselves misled by the political smoke screen that AB59 would effect savings to Coun ty Welfare Programs. EI Dorado County has stated "We will not save money in El Dorado County" — The County Social Welfare Director states there will be an increase of 200 families in the ANC Program of aid to unemployed parents. This figure represents only one of several categorical aids. Yuba and Sutter Counties have protested increased costs. Merced County condemns the bill. The Secretary, • Santa Clara Farm Bureau, pointed out at the Public Hearing. State Department oC Social Welfare, held in Sacramento Novembei 14, 1963 that under AB59 "A man with three children on relief doing nothing »vill receive at least S39 a month more net than a man who works for a minimum wage — not counting free medical and hospital benefits" — In such a situafion there is no incentive to work. In San Diego County AB59 will add 1250 new cases and require 90 to 93 additional employees and 1200 square feet more office space. 6. In the final analysis the costs of AB 59 will be stag geririg for everyone paying taxes, whether it be on clothing and other commodities or property taxes and general item of everyday living. All welfare costs will increase from approximately $175,000,000 to over a billion dollars annually. RECOMMENDATIONS: This Grand Jury makes the following specific recommendations: 1. We urge that the 1964 Grand Jury continue efforts to control the rising cost of welfare to the taxpayers in San Bernardino County. 2. Communities should organize community civic action groups who in lum will present factual information on local welfare problems to their communities. In addition, they will present the feelings of their communities to their legislators as a united front. Such action being more effective than separate individual efforts. 3. Existing State and County FREE PARKING AT REAR OF STORE ;govemment agencies should cooperate in a study at State level to: a. Reevaluate the effect of .AB59 on our economy. b. Study the general need for more restrictive policies, not liberalization which destroys incentive. c. Explore the possibility of providing a "loan" in cash, or kind, with a modest repayment plan rather than the direct entry on the welfare roll "gift list." This could do much toward salvaging a citizen's pride and encourage the sincere applicant in need of temporary assistance. d. Establish a forceful program of training and rehabilitation at both State and County levels to place employables on a worthwhile and sustaining basis. SPECIAL CONCLUSION: Continued watchfulness is a moral obligation of all citizens in order to protect our basic rights of incentive and self-determination. To allow our citizens to be pushed into subsisting on governmental hand-outs is the path to self-destruction. Joseph A. Atkins retires from Norton position Joseph A.
