I’m visiting preschools in Alabama with Montana legislators on both sides of the aisle. Alabama continues to grow investments in pre-k and I’m going to keep fighting to make sure Montana follows their lead. This is an investment we can’t afford not to make. https://t.co/Fv2wcmL0NP

Today | @NatlGovsAssoc @NCSLorg and @GovernorBullock with Montana Senators McConnell and Moore explore Alabama’s nationally recognized program of equity and quality in early childhood education.
