Warren, Smith call for $50B to rescue child care centers amid drop in attendance
$50 BILLION for daycare centers?
(From The Hill)
Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Tina Smith (D-Minn.) are calling for Congress to spend $50 billion to support child care providers who have seen enrollments drop and cleaning costs increase as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Warren and Smith warn that many child day care centers that were already stretched thin before the pandemic are now facing bankruptcies and layoffs as a result of plummeting enrollment.
