Back in November of 2021, the House of Representatives passed Build Back Better — but, the Senate has allowed this critical legislation for children to languish and stood by while the landmark improvements to the Child Tax Credit expired.
When this bill finally passes, it will put us on a pathway to ending child poverty through investments like the child tax credit. It will finally prioritize children's health by funding the Children's Health Insurance Program the same way we do every other healthcare program. It will reverse the dramatic spikes in food insecurity seen during the pandemic. It will save a struggling child care system and give our economy the crucial boost it needs. It will also prevent youth homelessness, invest in school infrastructure, and much more.
Simply put — the bill will prioritize kids in a way we tragically haven't before. But, all of this could be slashed, if we don't act now
