2017 Legislative Priority — Improving Outcomes for Children

The Kansas City Child Abuse Roundtable Coalition’s legislative agenda supports policies and budgets that protect and assist Missouri’s abused and neglected children and that prevent child abuse and neglect. The Coalition’s legislative priorities for the 2017 Session of the Missouri General Assembly are as follows:

  1. Maintain funding for programs and services which support child safety as a top priority for children who have suffered abuse and those at risk of abuse.
  2. Appropriate funds to ensure adequate staffing for Children’s Division investigators and assessors who respond to the increased number of reports related to youth with sexual behavior problems.
