Governor Kitzhaber applauds the Senate vote today passing House Bill 2013.
"House Bill 2013 is a key element of our plan to create an accountable, integrated local system to better connect early learning with health care, child care, and kindergarten readiness," said Governor Kitzhaber. "Bringing communities together to improve kindergarten readiness is an important investment in our kids. We can't reach 40-40-20 without it. A consistent and effective focus on early learning will deliver greater return on investment for the state, Oregon communities, and taxpayers. I look forward to signing this bill."
