Cliffs Notes have always been a life saver for those getting through High School or College.
We must recognize that this is the most “landmark” Title IVE legislation since its creation 38 years (1980) ago. It adds funding to prevention over foster care tipping the scales to slightly in favor of family. Which must be implemented and applied at whatever level. This means We the People must engage in watching for what does or does not happen ranging from community level through Federal.
What a wonderful head-start toward our work ahead which is needed for this legislation to progress.
As you will hear Texas State Representative Frank comment in the video below; passage is the beginning, because then comes implementation. He then describes a picture of a runner passing out on the starting line for a race. He also pointed out that even at state level it can take 2-3 years to implement new laws. It seems only natural that Federal laws will take longer.
The near passage of the FFPSA in 2016 offered states a preview of what was to come. many like Texas, passed legislation that was germane to the federal bill. It was so coincidental that this Texas Public Policy Foundation video was released perfectly timed with these Cliffs Notes. It appears the Texas 2017 wrote legislature directly for the FFPSA. Please skim Mr. Kelly’s Cliffs Notes and then watch the video; listen closely… you may want to take notes.
Did you hear the parallels? Did you pick up on things that you might need to watch for within your state?
We the People now must run the race.
