About

Every year, thousands of bills are introduced during the Washington state and federal legislative sessions.

The Partners for Our Children tracker monitors bills that have the potential to affect children and families – whether that’s specifically related to child welfare or  more broadly, child and family well being.  We have  a broad, yet targeted focus, and can closely monitor how bills and improve outcomes for children and families.  

For many years, we've summarized and tracked relevant bills in the Washington legislature.  We provide weekly updates.

In April 2018, Partners for Our Children started to track federal bills too. We will update those bills monthly, at minimum.

We try to keep the bills up-to-date, but if you notice an error or discrepancy, please email us.

Also, if there is a bill that you think we should be tracking, please let us know.
