The records of the California Children and Families Commission (CCFC) include 3 feet of textual records covering the years
1999 to 2002. The majority of the records consist of meeting files, detailing the Commission's monthly meetings from October
1999 to November 2002.
The California Children and Families Commission (CCFC) is also known variously as the California Children and Families First
State Commission, or as First 5 California. In November 1998, voters passed Proposition 10, which created the California Children
and Families First Program, with the CFCC as its governing board. Funding for the program comes from tax on cigarettes of
50 cents per pack, and on other tobacco products as well. Proposition 10 was approved by a margin of 50.5 to 49.5 percent;
its primary backer was filmmaker and activist Rob Reiner, who later became the Commission chairman.
