LWV Supports Access to Child Care for Young Parents

SB 6255/HB 2455 Supports access to child care for parents who are attending high school or working toward completion of a high school equivalency certificate. This bill reduces barriers minor parents face – child care, transportation, and cash assistance while pursuing their education, an additional determinant of inter-generational poverty. Executive action taken in Senate Committee on Early Learning & K-12. Passed out of House Committee and referred to Appropriations Committee. Give House Appropriations Committee member Representative Ybarra your comments on HB 2455.
