HB 1831 revises the definition of "resource" for purposes of eligibility requirements for an exemption of a resource in order to qualify for public assistance. The bill specifically changes the car asset limit to “if it is used for transportation for the individual or a member of the individual's household” and changes the cash asset limit to not exceed the limit set by the department, consistent with limitations on resources and exemptions necessary for federal aid assistance. 

Proposed Amendment 039:
Increases the maximum allowed values of resources exempt from consideration when determing eligibility for public assistance.
