Lawmakers Push Quality Control for Low-Income Child Care

Posted: Updated:

Lawmakers are pushing for the quality of low-income child care to be monitored by the state.

Nebraska spends nearly $95 million a year on child-care for working, low-income families. A new bill would require the rating of any provider receiving at least $250,000 dollars a year to be monitored.

The bill would also expand eligibility for the child-care recipients by increasing the maximum yearly income by $2,000 by 2015.

The current maximum income for a family of three is $23,400.
