Tuesday, February 14, 2023

SAINT PAUL, Minn. - Today, the Minnesota House passed two bills to improve access to affordable child care and early learning. HF 13 increases the maximum rates for all Child Care Assistance Program-eligible children. HF 150 delivers a $52.5 million emergency investment in child care stabilization grants and early learning scholarships. Rep. Tina Liebling (DFL - Rochester) voted for the legislation. 

“Investing in early care and learning for Minnesota’s children is the best way to ensure they have a bright future, and that parents can participate in the workforce. That’s why I’m proud to support these two bills,” said Rep. Liebling. “By prioritizing child care we are making it a little easier for families to get by. These are smart investments. I will continue to support legislation that supports families and children.”
