High-Quality Early Learning is Requisite in Senate Bill Signed into Law

This week President Obama signed S.1086, the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014, into law. The bill, as described in a  previous blogpost, reauthorizes funds through fiscal year 2020 for child care investments, and includes high-quality early learning as a requisite component. The new law passed with bipartisan support, including votes by Senators Mike Johanns and Deb Fischer from Nebraska. The House of Representatives conducted a voice vote (without a record), but Congressman Lee Terry vocalized his support of the bill on Facebook stating, “I’m proud to support this important measure that will give states the opportunity to design and implement their own plans for childcare in their state.”
