 In response to a report onintergenerational poverty that theDepartment of Workforce Services
provided last year, the 2013 session
of the Utah Legislature created theIntergenerational Welfare ReformCommission and the IntergenerationalPoverty Advisory Committee. I serve asthe chair of the commission and BishopH. David Burton chairs the Advisory 
Committee. Among many ndings, last
 year’s report showed:
 The more impoverished a person isduring childhood, the more likely that person is to receive public
assistance (PA) as an adult.
One in every 20 intergenerationalteen girls (ages 13 to 17) waspregnant during 2012, expecting the
“fourth generation” of PA recipients.
One third of intergenerationaladults have less than a high schooldiploma or GED completion. Mostof the remaining population have nopostsecondary education Together, Bishop Burton and I as wellas our respective teams are working on a policy agenda that addressesthese trends in a meaningful way  with the goal of ending the cycle of poverty. Some of the initial ideas tohelp us reach our goal include fostering collaboration across state agenciesand community partners in sharing and analyzing data and informationregarding intergenerational poverty 
in the state; examining and analyzing 
the shared data; and identifying and
developing eective and ecient
plans, programs and recommendations
to help at-risk children in the state
escape the cycle of poverty and welfaredependency.
I am condent that we can set forth
an agenda to increase awarenessand promote meaningful public
policy that addresses — and ends — 
intergenerational poverty in Utah.
