In California, the Weekend Activities Bill, AB983, has passed the Assembly and is in Senate Committee. The bill expands after school services to the weekend. 

On the federal level, S1281, the Investment in Afterschool Programs Act, proposes a pilot program to establish after school programs in rural areas.  

Senate Committee bill S1406 and House-passed bill HR 2997 both expand the Afterschool Meal Program beyond the current 10 states.

Locate your state and federal legislators to let them know how you stand on these bills.
