What about the Children

The state budget was bittersweet for New York families and children this year.

“Raise the Age” was one of the sweetest parts and cuts to child care subsidies were a bitter pill to swallow, according to Dede Hill, the director of policy for the Schuyler Center.

She came on the podcast to talk about both measures, including the practical changes of raising the age of criminal responsibility. Hill also talked about state child care tax credits for middle class families and proposals on the federal level from President Donald Trump.

A comprehensive analysis of the budget has also been release by the Schuyler Center.
