Committee on Labour and Social Affairs, Youth, Familiy Affairs and Integration
18 members of Parliament in total belong to the Committee on Labour and Social Affairs, Youth, Family Affairs and Integration: ten CSU members, four SPD members and two members each from the FREIE WÄHLER (FW) and Alliance 90/The Greens (GRU).
The committee was set up by the Bavarian State Parliament in 1946 at the start of the first electoral term. Its area of responsibility is essentially the same as that of the Bavarian State Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Family and Integration, whose work the social policy committee monitors. If the committee deals with housing development issues, it touches on the Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior, Building and Transport‘s area of responsibility.
Within its area of responsibility, the committee assists the plenary with examining pending motions and bills and preparing appropriate decisions across the wide varied range of social policy. Consequently, the committee makes an important contribution to further developing this area. Besides legislative work, the committee also tackles individual social policy issues as a result of pending motions, which are of particular importance to people in the Free State of Bavaria.
Current topics include, among other things, consultancy on improving the situation of people with disabilities as well as older citizens in Bavaria, the poverty problem, early childhood education and upbringing, childcare for under threeyear- olds and also how to deal with issues of child and youth welfare, statutory pensions and integration policy.
The committee also hears experts and holds discussions to prepare for decisions. In addition, the committee deals with a wealth of petitions and complaints that come under its specialist area of responsibility.
