Throughout the past few months, hundreds of phone calls and emails were sent to Wisconsin legislators in support of YoungStar. It is because of the these efforts- from providers and advocates in the field- that the Joint Finance Committee unanimously passed the program last week. We would like to thank all of you for the many contacts you made to legislators to make this happen- your hard work paid off!
If you would like to thank your legislators for supporting YoungStar, you can click on Wisconsin Council on Children and Families’ Take Action link or call 1-800-362-9472 and leave them a message. To thank the co-chairs of the Joint Finance Committee, contact Senator Mark Miller and Representative Mark Pocan.
Thanks again for all of your hard work. This was a great team effort on behalf of young children across the state!
