Gov. Matt Mead says Wyoming will not seek to waive federal welfare work requirements.
 
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is allowing states the option to waive certain work requirements for people on welfare.
 
The requirements are part of a 1996 welfare reform law aimed at getting welfare recipients into the workforce.
 
The issue has come up in this year's presidential campaign between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
