White House Conference on Families: Families and Economic Well-Being. Delegate Workbook.
White House Conference on Families, Washington, DC.
The aims of this workbook for delegates to the White House Conference on Families are (1) to focus attention on the themes of the conference, (2) to provide brief background information on the issues to be discussed in the conference workgroups, and (3) to summarize recommendations which were part of the state issue reports. The workbook is designed to be used with the Hearing Summary and the summary of state reports for the White House Conference on Families. The workbook contains briefs (arranged under the general topic of Families and Well-Being) on five themes of the conference. These briefs are economic pressures, family and work, tax policies, income security for families, and status of homemakers. The Issue Briefs, which attempt to provide basic information for further discussion and decisions, are organized into four sections: Introduction; Background Information on Major Issues (demographic and other data); Current Programs and Policies (where appropriate); and Recommendations from the States.
