Yes. An older child succeeds more both academically and socially in kindergarten than a younger one. Students should not be rushed into academic settings before they are ready.

No. Even if achievement gaps based on age occur in kindergarten, they usually disappear by third grade. Poor families would be hit harder by a later starting age, and the pending legislation has more to do with test scores than with student well-being.
