ND Lawmakers Pass Comprehensive Childcare Bill

(Bismarck, ND)  --  Some North Dakota parents are set to get childcare cost assistance from the state.  

The Legislature passed a 66-million dollar measure yesterday to address the childcare crisis.  The bill would help lower income parents with childcare costs, as well as providing grants to childcare providers and stipends for childcare workers.

Previous proposals by the governor, Democrats, and the appropriations committee included higher funding for the measure.
