Hi everyone,
This Wednesday, the 4th, is the NCL Public Policy Committee meeting at 4:00 EDT. We have a pretty full agenda to start.

*         2020 Census - citizenship question

*         Strategizing for WIOA reauthorization

*         Public charge NPRM (see note below)

*         NCL survey on advocacy priorities

*         Comment period for SNAP rule change

*         DOE reorganization

*         NCL May meeting and legislative briefing

Draft of the regulations on public charge: https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4413837/Read-the-Trump-administration-s-draft-proposal.pdf
Statements within the document:
P. 78: "In general, an alien with educational credentials and skills is more employable and less likely to become a public charge."
P. 79: "The data suggests that people who have lower education levels are not only likely to receive public benefits but they tend to stay on them longer."

Call-in information:

Hope to talk to you Wednesday!
