The League position grew out of a study on Monterey County Government. The Study Committee produced a detailed report entitled "Welfare in Monterey County, Burden or Opportunity?" which contained recommendations on administration of public assistance, services for families and children, and need for public information. In April, 1968, the League adopted the following position:
- Support of Public Assistance Programs that respond to changing economic and social needs of the poor in Monterey County, including elderly and working poor.
- Support of measures that will promote greater public understanding of public assistance in Monterey County.
