Our report shows the 2015 Medicaid cuts are taking a toll on Texas kids with disabilities and developmental delays.
State leaders made investments and policy changes that should make CPS safer, but a closer look at this session makes it clear that there is still unfinished business.

Here are five high-profile issues to keep an eye on in the 2017 legislative session.
Many women don't get insurance from their employers, and, with few exceptions, women in Texas can't apply for Medicaid coverage until they're pregnant. So they often miss the opportunity for preconception care, such as diabetes treatment or access to contraception, which would help them plan a healthy pregnancy.

As policymakers and others seek to build on this success, one of the key issues to start working on is confinement of youth on county probation.
