Assembly Sub-Committee Rejects CalWORKs Budget Cuts

Last week's Senate and Assembly Budget Committees held hearings concerning Governor Jerry Brown's proposed budget cuts to CalWORKs and Child Care  Current and former recipients of CalWORKs and their community partners held a rally at the capitol and testified at the hearings culminating in the rejection of the cuts in the Assembly Human Services Committee.   

Last week's Senate and Assembly budget hearings concerning the Governor's proposed budget cuts brought large crowds of concerned parents and community partners to the state capitol.  Below is a list of press received and links to photos of the week's activities.  The words of those who testified at the hearing were not lost on Assembly Budget Subcommittee Chairwoman Holly Mitchell and members of the committee who voted to reject the proposed cuts to CalWORKs and the Budget Chairman Bob Blumenfield who visited the hearing to state his support for the Subcommittee's decisions.

You can learn more about the Governor's Proposed Cuts to Childcare and CalWORKs by listening to a recently recorded webinar on the topic hosted by the California Center for Research on Women's and Families:  http://ccrwf.org/working-families-policy-project/working-families-web-forum/safety-net/
