The Common Start Coalition, of which LWVMA is a member, is holding two regional events in January to urge the members of the Joint Committee on Education and other legislators to report bills H.489 and S.301 favorably out of committee before the February 7 reporting deadline – and to show them how important high-quality, affordable, and accessible early education and child care is is to their constituents.
