(ABC 6 News) – 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.”
