Michigan Appeals Court allows 4-year welfare limit to go forward

A plan to limit welfare to four years is back on again.
Around 11,000 Michigan residents are expected to lose their benefits when the cuts take place.
Earlier this week Genesee County Judge Neithercut put a temporary block on the measure, but the Michigan Court of Appeals has since lifted the judge TMs injunction.
The Associated Press reports the Department of Human Services can now stop payments immediately to recipients who have been receiving the state aid for four years or more.
