Hutchinson's Call to Action for Child Care ReformKANKAKEE – State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D – Chicago Heights) released the following statement before her tour of the YWCA Kankakee Child Care Center to bring attention to the lack of child care funding:

“Every month that goes by without a budget hurts working families and children in ways that are immeasurable. Investing in child care is the responsible thing to do no matter which way you look at it, no matter which political party you belong to. I have been fighting for months to get more children into classrooms as soon as possible and give providers the stability they desperately need to make it through this crisis. If Senate Bill 570 comes back to the Senate for a vote, I have agreed to hold it only as long as a temporary rule is actually passed in the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules on Nov. 17,  giving thousands of providers and kids immediate relief.  It’s past time for us to work together in every way we can every time we can. Our children deserve nothing less.”
