RECOGNIZING, that the nation's children are its most precious asset; and
THAT, specialists in child care lay great stress on the importance of the period between birth and five years, when children respond most favorably to health and education programs; and
THAT, parents must have assurance that the day care of their children will be more than a baby-sitting process, and
THAT, there is need for quality day care and family services centers open to all families.
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that we urge Congress to pass, and the President to sign, the necessary legislation for the creation of child development and family services centers throughout the country, available to the poor free of charge and on a sliding scale for all others, to be administered locally and with community involvement; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Congress appropriate funds immediately so that legislation can take effect as soon as possible during this period of serious economic stress.
