The Child Poverty Reduction Act passed in state Senate

The Child Poverty Reduction Act being passed would help with the goal of cutting child poverty in half over the next decade.

The legislation passed the state Senate yesterday with a bipartisan vote of 61 “yes” and 2 “no” votes.

The bill works to create an advisory body that would gather data, share it publicly and make recommendations about how New York can better address child poverty.

The legislative session will end Thursday.
