North Dakota State Senator Kathy Hogan announces 6 point childcare legislative proposal while discussing re-election campaign

(Fargo, ND) -- The democratic incumbent serving as state senator representing Fargo's District 21 talks about why she's seeking re-election.

Kathy Hogan says she was considering retiring before ultimately deciding to run again before choosing to run. She has been serving in the state senate since 2018, and previously served 9 years in the house beginning in 2009. She and other democratic lawmakers are now pushing a 6 point plan they say is aimed at addressing the state's childcare crisis.  

The proposal includes providing financial assistance and tax credits to families to help make care more affordable, and providing financial assistance to childcare providers.

Hogan says they're working on the plan "so that we can stabilize that infrastructure because it's core infrastructure for our workforce but also for all of our businesses".
