Amended day-care bill wins unanimous support in the Senate

The Senate has voted unanimously in favor of HB 129a, the day-care regulation bill. Sen. Joyce Broadsword, R-Sagle, said amendments to the bill simplified it and made sure that it addressed complaints about the existing law that have been coming in from day-care providers around the state. “We took a 15-page bill and turned it into a four-page bill,” she told the Senate. Sen. Tim Corder, R-Mountain Home, said there's long been conflict over day-care regulations, and that the amended bill strikes an appropriate balance. “It's a compromise fix, and it resolves a number of problems,” Corder said. The amended bill now returns to the House for concurrence in the Senate amendments.
