2014 Leg Report Card – How did your legislators score?

2014 leg scorecardEach year, the 90 members of our state legislature vote on dozens of bills that shape the education, health and safety of Arizona’s children and families. CAA believes that every lawmaker has the responsibility to vote for kids, and our legislators should be held accountable and measured on their performance.

That’s why we publish our annual report card on Arizona’s legislators, Who’s for Kids and Who’s Just Kidding? During the legislative session, Children’s Action Alliance analyzed and took a stand on several bills. This report card focuses on seven of them in the Senate and six in the House. Together they cover the issues of child welfare, affordable child care, education, budget and taxes and predatory lending. Take a look inside and see why each vote was important, how each legislator voted and key progress for kids during session.

    I’m interested in how my Senate & Representative voted. I haven’t kept up with Az. too much.

    Sometimes having children removed from their homes and placed in foster care is inevitable. But in some circumstances, all the families need is some type of intervention or services to not have their children removed. I believe if more funding was available these families would receive the services needed and avoid removal all together. Offering some type of therapeutic services to the parents and families would reduce removals and keep families together. Also, if children are removed then placed back home with parents I think some services should be put in place to ensure the families stay united. Overall I strongly believe mental health services, not medications (other topic) are essential in moving forward and progressing in life.
