Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance Applauds New Childcare Initiatives

The Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance is applauding new childcare initiatives.

They joined State Legislators and Governor Gretchen Whitmer Tuesday as a bipartisan packet of eight bills was put forward.

The bills cover both regulatory reform as well as supply building to support childcare providers and increase capacity.

The Chamber Alliance says that access to childcare is one of the major issues holding back our area, and the implementation of these bills would help both families and local businesses.

“The alliance is here to help move forward these reforms,” said —-. “We stand ready to continue our work together to support childcare providers, families and our employers. And we want to thank again our Legislative leaders and Governor for making quality child care a priority.”

The Chamber Alliance says they will continue to work with and advise Legislators as the bills make their way through the State House and Senate.
