KIDSCOUNT Data CenterThe 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. Deviney’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.
