McMorris Rodgers: A Victory for Eastern Washington Families

Sep 16, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC– Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement today after the House passed S. 1086, the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014.

“Today the House acted to protect and empower working families all across this country.  As the mom of three young children, and the representative of thousands of working parents in Eastern Washington, I know how important it is to find safe and reliable child care services for our kids.  And right now – when too many moms and dads are struggling to pay their bills and make ends meet – American families need security.  They need options.  And they need solutions.   This bipartisan legislation improves and modernizes our child care services while giving parents the peace of mind they need when they say goodbye to their kids every morning.  It strengthens the safety of existing child care facilities.  And it makes life better for hardworking parents.  As this bill heads to the President’s desk, we celebrate a huge victory for families in every corner of this country.”
