California Child Care Program Saved (for now)
Mary Ignatius of Parent Voices wrote us today with good news: the Stage 3 child care program in California will stay in effect until December 31st. Originally, due to a line-item budget veto by then-Governor Schwarzenegger, the program's funding was to be cut as of November 1st. Thanks to the work of grassroots organizations and advocates, this will not happen. They will keep the pressure on Governor Brown and the state legislature to restore funding immediately.
