8.     Update on Policy Issues: This will be a standing agenda item.

       Trustline: Still waiting on word regarding Laird bill. If lgislation is not passed the
       Governor’s office will most likely implenet new regulations.

       The state budget was signed and child care funding is essentially stagnant. We continue
       to see declining caseloads in the CalWORKs program, however new Regional Market
       Rates will help expend our child care dollars.

      introduced Tom Corson and Cheryl Holsonbake with the KC Network for Children. The
      KCNC publishes an annual report card of child statistics with baseline indicators for

      the KCNC uses data to help shape policy.
