McMorris Rodgers: Helping Eastern Washington Families

WASHINGTON, DC– Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement today after the Senate passed S. 1086, the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014, which is part of her package of bills to empower families at work and home.

“Tonight the Senate sent the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014 to the President’s desk, marking a significant victory for working families in Eastern Washington. This bill, with its commonsense reforms, reflects the dynamics of a changing, 21st-century workforce, and is yet another solution to help working families create better lives.  As we continue to empower moms and dads both at work and at home, we build more opportunities for families in the Pacific Northwest and in every corner of America." 

S. 1086 includes these conservative reforms that strengthen the Child Care Development Block Grant Program:

·Enhances parental choice by providing information about available care options from all providers, including faith-based and community-based providers, and allowing parents to choose the child care provider that best suits their family’s needs.

· Strengthens safety in child care settings by requiring all providers  to comply with state health, safety, and fire standards and undergo annual inspections.
