Bill expands child care capacity, funding

Email

BISMARCK -- Child care facilities will be able to take on more children, and families will be in a better position to afford child care with a bill passed Tuesday.

The Legislature sent Gov. Jack Dalrymple House Bill 1422, which bumps up the state's cap on the number of children a provider can watch at one time.

It also provides financial incentives, with $1 million in grants for the recruitment, training and retention of child care workers to meet demand.
