ST. PAUL, MN – House Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, announced today that Rep. Mary Franson, R-Alexandria, will serve as the Chair of the Subcommittee on Childcare Access and Affordability for the 2017 and 2018 legislative sessions. The subcommittee falls under the purview of the Health and Human Services Reform Committee.
“This subcommittee will work to tackle the issues of rising childcare care costs, decreased care options around the state, and navigating federal and state regulations and mandates,” said Franson. “As a working mother and former childcare provider, I understand the need for quality, affordable childcare in Minnesota, and look forward to working with members of both parties to find common-sense solutions to these issues."
Franson previously served as the chair of the Select Committee on Affordable Childcare.
