Position Statements: Election 2016

Created on: Wednesday, September 21, 2016 - 4:28pm
The following positions on statewide ballot measures for the 2016 general election have been taken by the Children’s Alliance.
Initiative 732: NO

Second, it’s predicted to worsen the state’s budget shortfall—jeopardizing programs and services kids need to thrive.
