$1.4 million state budget earmark includes funding to improve Children’s Center playground

Kids taking a tumble at the ASI Children’s Center playground will have a softer landing thanks to a $1 million earmark in the state budget.

Assemblymember Kevin McCarty announced the funding at a Sept. 29 press conference at Sacramento State, outside the center.

“I had the opportunity to put together a list of $25 million to reinvest in a dozen or so projects around Sacramento, and this was certainly one that rose to the top of my list,” McCarty said.
