Child Care Subsidies in Monroe County:
An Analysis of Need, Availability and Trends

The second installment in the excellent Child Care Subsidies in Monroe County report is now available. This research was conducted by the Center for Governmental Research (CGR) and funded by the LWV-RMA Bee Bibby Endowment. The first installment can be accessed here.

LWV 1st Vice-President and Advocacy Chair Katherine Smith participated on a discussion of the report on Connections with Evan Dawson on WXXI-1370AM on May 12. You can listen to the WXXI program here.

The May 12 Democrat and Chronicle article "Parents getting day care funds increasingly poor" highlighted the report.


LWVUS and Fracking

The League of Women Voters of the United States recently endorsed, and is encouraging members of Congress to cosponsor and support five pieces of legislation known as the “Frack Pack.” These bills seek to keep our air and water safe while holding big polluters responsible for the process known as hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking.' The Frack Pack bills will close loopholes in the Safe Drinking Water, Clean Water, Clean Air, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Acts while establishing mandatory testing of water resources to contain contamination.

The League is a nonpartisan, political organization which encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. The League is NOT limited to women — men can join in the fight as well.
