Statement from Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on introduction of legislation to support mothers running for office
April 20, 2023
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson today made the following statement regarding the introduction of Senate Bill 278 (Chang) and House Bill 4413 (Hood):
"Thank you Senator Chang and Representative Hood for introducing legislation that would explicitly state that campaign funds can pay for child care costs and for helping level the playing field for mothers seeking leadership roles in their communities. I will continue to work with you to ensure that mothers running for office have the support they need to put in the countless evening, weekend and holiday hours that successful campaigns require and that strengthen our democracy."
