Rob's Priorities

Childcare & Education

The cost of child care and education has skyrocketed in recent years, disproportionately impacting working families and making life even more difficult for residents of our district. In Washington, I will legislate to:

  • Expand and extend the Child Tax Credit;
  • Support Democratic proposals to cap child care costs at 7% of income for many families;
  • Guarantee universal preschool for all families;
  • Provide federal funding for children’s hospitals to expand mental health services;
  • Invest in early childhood care; and
  • Fully fund child nutrition programs.
