Public Law 1995, Chapter 418, Part B established the Commission to Study Poverty Among Working Parents to investigate the extent to which poverty exists among working families, how poverty among working or underemployed parents contributes to the need for greater public assistance expenditure, and how economic development efforts and other public and private sector initiatives could reduce poverty. The Commission was charged with making comprehensive recommendations.

The Commission addressed four broad topic areas: the economy and low-wage job market, tax laws and other incentives, education and training, and federal and state programs and policies that support families.
