Board Member Monica Ratliff’s statement on supporting Assembly Bill 273

March 15, 2017

I am happy to support Assembly Bill 273 (Aguilar-Curry).

This bill allows parents who are pursuing English as a second language, their high school diploma, and general education development certificates, to be eligible to receive child care services under the Child Care and Development Services Act. Many families within L.A. are currently enrolled in these classes as they seek to better their lives and the lives of their children. I appreciate my fellow board members’ unanimous support for this bill.
