|Sen. Barbara Boxer|
California's U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer has been named co-chair of the Senate's Afterschool Caucus. "As co-chair of the Afterschool Caucus, I will keep fighting to increase funding for vital afterschool programs because too many children still come home to empty houses in the afternoon and too many families cannot afford to pay for afterschool care," Boxer said in a statement.
