Putting Kids First
    Dear Friends, Private re-homing is typically used to describe pet owners looking for a new home for their animals. But there is an online underworld where re-homing is just as often used to shift guardianship of children, without regulation or oversight. Having grown up in a family with many foster siblings, this hits close to home, and I find this practice deeply unsettling. Thankfully, I am not alone.

Langevin’s amendment would increase funding for the Federal Transit Administration’s Technical Assistance and Training program by $2 million, restoring it to last year’s funding levels.  Technical Assistance and Training funds are used to improve transit accessibility for individuals with disabilities and older users. “As our population ages, it is imperative that we provide community-based supports that allow older Americans, as well as people with disabilities, to live independently and with dignity,” said Langevin, who co-chairs the Bipartisan Disabilities Caucus. “Public transportation is an essential component of those community services, without which many of these individuals would be unable to get to work or access other important services, like health care.
