California Legislature Ends First Year of 2017/18 Session
California Legislature Ends First Year of 2017/18 Session

Late in the night on September 15, 2017 the California State Legislature closed out the first year of the 2017/18 legislative session.  All the bills which passed both the Senate and Assembly have been sent to Governor Brown. The Governor now has until October 15th to sign or veto these measures. 

Child Care Resource Center took positions on four legislative measures related to early childhood education. Three of these bills were successfully implemented in the 2017/18 budget agreement in June:

  1. AB60 (Santiago/Gonzalez-Fletcher) to expand family eligibility for child care
  2. AB1164 (Thurmond) to create a child care bridge for foster children
  3. SB78 (Leyva) to expand funding for afterschool enrichment programs throughout California

The fourth bill, AB 273 (Aguiar-Curry) would allow English as a Second Language, and GED classes as vocational training programs for families in subsidized care, passed both houses of the legislature and is on the Governor’s desk.

As always we will keep you informed as we learn more. If you have any questions, contact our Government Relations Director, Donner Sneeringer at Dsneeringer@ccrcca.org.
