July 22, 2010
The Honorable Mark Strama, his wife Crystal Cotti, and Texas KIDS COUNT Director Dr. Frances Deviney take an honest look at the well-being of Texas children at a briefing on Tuesday, July 27 from 10-11 a.m. Dr. Deviney will highlight new national KIDS COUNT data comparing Texas kids to children across the nation. This data comes at a critical time when Texans are just beginning to discover the devastating effects of the recession on child well-being, and state lawmakers are grappling with one of the largest budget shortfalls in our state's history.
Mr. Strama and Ms. Cotti will provide keynote remarks before Dr. Devineyâ€™s presentation. All attendees will receive copies of the National KIDS COUNT Data Book and Texas State Fact Sheet. We will also provide our 2009-10 state data book, The State of Texas Children on a first-come first-serve basis.
Doors will open at 9:30 for networking and refreshments. Presentation will begin promptly at 10:00.
