Montana Governor Steve Bullock made a stop at Cafe Diem in Ames, IA on the 28th of May. He was approached by former Iowa state legislator and founder of the Children’s Policy Coalition, Charlie Bruner, who asked him what he planned to do as president to improve healthy development of children in their first 1000 days.
Bullock says that while serving in Montana, he supported policy to increase the number of maternal health check-ups and home visits once the child is born. He also states that as a country, we need to offer universal pre-k to anyone who wants it.
