Senate Budget Subcommittee on Education April 12!

If you oppose the Governor’s proposed cuts to child care, let California Senators know!!
Here’s a message from the California Alternative Payment Program Association (CAPPA).

“We have heard that your letters, phone calls and visits are making a difference! But we cannot let up. This Thursday, April 12th, the Senate Budget Subcommittee 1 on Education will have their first in-depth hearing on the Governor’s proposed child care cuts. The members on the committee must continue to hear from all of us in the early care and education field that these proposals must be OPPOSED!!!

The more parents and families that can personally attend the hearing, the better the visual impact to the legislators that vote on our issues. However, if you cannot attend, you still have the power to make an impact. Below are sample letters for you to use and make your own in addition to contact information to the Senators that will hear our issues. Personal communications are the best.”

CAPPA suggests you write to Chairman Liu immediately. Below are two templates provided by CAPPA. These can be adapted to fit your connection to child care.
