New select committee will look at child care costs

House Speaker Kurt Daudt (R-Crown) on Tuesday announced the formation of a Select Committee on Affordable Child Care that will aim to tackle rising child care costs facing Minnesota parents.

The select committee, chaired by Rep. Mary Franson (R-Alexandria), will begin touring parts of Greater Minnesota in February to hear from parents and child care providers about challenges they face and potential solutions, according to a news release.

“Minnesota has many top-quality childcare providers who offer a safe, quality environment for children to learn, grow, and thrive,” Franson said in a statement. “However, too many Minnesota families cannot find available or affordable child care in their community.”
