The Bipartisan Childcare Insight and Improvement Act Bill Unanimously Passed
From the office of Congressmen Greg Landsman
This week, the House Small Business Committee unanimously passed our bipartisan bill, The Childcare Insight and Improvement Act.
This bill would require the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to:
- Conduct a study on the needs and challenges of for-profit childcare providers,
- Identify what resources the SBA currently provides to for-profit childcare providers,
- Make recommendations to address the challenges faced by for-profit childcare providers.
DISTRICT IMPACT: In Ohio, the average cost of annual childcare for one kid is $11,000. Working families need access to quality, affordable childcare and providers need more support. This bill provides Congress with the knowledge needed to pass legislation that will work.
"I’ll be working with my colleagues to bring our bill up for a vote in the House," Landsman noted.

Also, this week, the House passed the Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act, which is a major win for families and small businesses.
A part of this bill expands the existing Child Tax Credit to benefit America's neediest. The boost could lift nearly half a million kids out of poverty and slash poverty rates for an additional five million. The bill, also, restores tax credits for certain business expenses, like research and development to invest back into businesses. This will impact Southwest Ohio in that the Child Tax Credit is expected to support 35,000 kids!
Not only does this provide critical support to the families who need it most, but it is a true example of the bipartisan majority working to get things done for Americans.
