Will 2016 be the year Mississippi prioritizes child care?

JACKSON, Miss. — A bill to create an interagency council to oversee early education programs passed the Senate’s education committee Feb. 17. The full Senate has until March 3 to vote on the proposal.

The bill’s author, Sen. Brice Wiggins, R-Pascagoula, hopes it will break the cycle of legislative inaction on the state’s child care system. The bill is one of a dozen pieces of legislation proposed this session aimed at improving the quality of child care or making it more affordable for parents.
