(SACRAMENTO, CA) – Today, Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) and supporters led a rally at the Natomas School Readiness Program in support of AB 47—The Preschool for All Act of 2015. During the rally, a preschooler named Sienna signed a petition on behalf of California children to Governor Brown. The bill has garnered strong support among over 40 education, health, parent, civic, law enforcement, business, faith, local leaders, and military organizations. AB 47 is currently on the Governor’s Desk for his consideration.
“California has the opportunity to provide each of our low-income children access to quality preschool,” said Assemblymember Kevin McCarty. “We hope the Governor shares this same vision and we’re here to urge Governor Brown to sign AB 47 into law.”
