During the week of April 27th, 2015 the House of Representative will debate all amendments to the House Ways and Means budget. Up until when an amendment is debated Representatives can sign on as cosponsors if they have not already and they can advocate in meetings on different amendments called caucuses. So we need to continue to advocate for their support!

The annual Teen Parent Lobby Day is a central piece of the Alliance’s work.
