Eye On Boise

Full house at day care hearing

The crowd fills the room and is spilling out the door at the House Health & Welfare Committee today, which is holding a hearing on SB 1112, the bill to set basic, minimum standards for all Idaho day care centers, including criminal background checks. The bill earlier passed the Senate on a 30-5 vote, after dying in committee each year for the past four years. House committee Chair Sharon Block, R-Twin Falls, said, “It’s nice to have so many of you with us today to participate in the legislative process.” The bill’s co-sponsor, Sen. Tim Corder, R-Mountain Home, told the panel the bill is about “the health and safety of some of our most vulnerable citizens.”
