Bill to add to subsidies for child care advances in legislature

Posted: 05/01/13 08:49

A bill advancing in the legislature would establish a grading system for childcare providers. Senator Kathy Campbell of Lincoln says Nebraska now has no standard of quality, which she says affects low-income families the most. An amendment expands the public subsidy for child care from families earning up to 120% of the federal poverty level to 130% over two years. That would add about 7,300 children at a cost of 8.2 Million over the next two years.
