Law Makers Tour Child Care Consider Tougher Regulations


As many have heard and read about the tragedy earlier this year, where the young toddler drowned in a ministry center.  Lawmakers have been touring child care centers, and feel that tougher regulations on child care ministries should be enforced.   

As the Committee on Child Care toured three centers including two ministries, which follow 20 standards.  Licensed Child Care facilities  follow 200 or more regulations.  Lawmakers are considering making ministries that receive federal funding comply to the same standards as licensed facilities.    One of the committee members response was, “If you want to run a facility your way,you can’t receive state money, we have an interest in making sure funds are invested in the state of Indiana.”
