Bipartisan Priorities for Helping Families in 2024

R Street

Location: Online

The year 2024 is shaping up to be crucial for working families. With worries over a cooling economy, increasing child care costs, and poor maternal and infant health outcomes, the pressure is on to craft family-friendly policies this year.

Congress has a broad range of potential opportunities to provide families with effective economic, social, and health support. At the same time, legislative turmoil, the looming expiration of crucial tax provisions, and a challenging fiscal environment mean some of these opportunities may be nearly impossible to achieve.

The R Street Institute invites you to an online discussion about several key priorities to help families. These are practical, bipartisan opportunities, such as reforming tax bills for families, improving telehealth access, and ensuring labor flexibility for working parents. We’ll also discuss the overarching challenges to working families, which can greatly deter Americans’ plans to have families in the first place. All of these are aimed at delivering well-targeted, sensible support to working families in 2024.
