Rep. Bass Statement on Passage of Child Welfare Package
“I’m proud of the coalition that came together in support of these incredibly important bills,” Rep. Bass said after the five bills passed. “Every year, 23,000 young people age out of foster care in need of various support to transition into adulthood--including housing, healthcare, education, financial literacy, and job training. Today, our chamber stepped up and said ‘we hear you and we’ll be there for you.’ It’s a tangible example of this chamber making an impact and a difference in hundreds of thousands of lives. It’s possible for us to come together, and this is an example of just that.”
