Written testimony sent to Chair Jay Livingstone, Chair Robyn Kennedy, and members of the Joint Committee on Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities in support of H.144/S.75, An Act to lift kids out of deep poverty. This legislation would help families afford necessities for their children by setting a floor for cash assistance at 50% of the federal poverty line, then adjusting grants annually for inflation so they do not lose their value over time.
