Amato, Tracey L.
Calling for action on a wide range of children's issues, this guide of the National Association of Child Advocates (NACA) delineates the state legislative agendas of 41 of its members from 33 states. The reference guide is presented in three sections. Section 1 contains the legislative priorities by topic area in a chart format indicating the priorities for each member and contact information for the lead staff person. Section 2 lists priorities by state for each NACA member in the areas of health, education, child welfare, economic security/family support, intervention, prevention, tobacco settlement fund use, and early care and education. Section 3 delineates the legislative successes of five NACA members. Areas given the greatest priority among NACA's members include foster care reform, expansions in the Earned Income Tax Credit, and increased access to health care. (KB)
