The CLC supports a full legislative program for needy and abused children and works in cooperation with Texans Care for Children.

Legislative priorities

  • Reform and reorganization for effective, compassionate, child protective and family services, including effective partnerships that impact faith-related child and family services.
  • Promote an effective eligibility system that supports access to services and also recognizes the limits of community-based and faith-related services.
  • Strengthen efforts to provide immunization and health insurance for all children in Texas.
  • Clarify the nature and definitions of marriage and family used in Texas code.
