LAO: Lawmakers Must Reject Brown’s Cuts to Child Care
A new Legislative Analyst's Office reportÂ urges the California Legislature to oppose a plan by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) to cut reimbursement rates by 10% for subsidized child care centers. LAO warns that the proposal -- part of Brown's fiscal year 2012-2013 budget plan -- could lead to the closure of many of the centers, which serve more than 300,00 underserved children in the state.
