Council Vice President Barth’s Statement on Pre-K Funding Proposal Passing Committee Tonight:

“Tonight's vote in the Council’s Community Affairs and Education Committee to pass Proposal 46 to fund the Indianapolis Pre-K Program is an example of how government works best. Both Democrats and Republicans set aside politics and focused on a shared priority – putting our city’s kids first. Making high-quality pre-K available for kids in the lowest income families can yield life-long advantages. I look forward to a final vote on the pre-k funding proposal during the full Council meeting set for March 2, 2015.”
