In no other way does a democracy more clearly demonstrate its conviction regarding its responsibility for the total welfare of its people than in its social legislation. And our present public assistance laws may be viewed as the highest expression of that conviction. The enactment of their most recent revisions, the 1956 Public Assistance Amendments to the Social Security Act, afford a very broad legal base on which the public assistance agency can act to convert the ideals of service to needy individuals and families into reality.
