Budget and Legislative Priorities
Council for a Strong America California recognizes the immense challenges and opportunities for advancing policies and programs that positively impact the wellbeing of our children and youth. We believe all children and youth should have the opportunity to be healthy, educated, and cared for, and that the child care industry is a vital backbone to California’s future economy - now and always. Together, we can increase economic security for all families while supporting safer communities, healthier children, and a more productive economy. We are working with the California legislature as our members advocate for policies and programs that improve our national security, public safety, and economy and impact the wellbeing of children and youth.
