Hinson Introduces Bill to Expand Affordable Child Care Access in Iowa, Nationwide

March 24, 2021

Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (R-IA) today introduced the Child CARE Act, legislation that will help Congress make informed policy decisions on how to best use limited federal resources to expand access to affordable, quality child care options in Iowa and across the country. 

"As a working mom, I know that access to affordable childcare that parents can trust is important and a huge barrier to people entering the workforce, especially in rural communities. Over the past year, working mothers have been shoved out of the workforce at an alarming rate—we cannot allow this to be a permanent consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.” -Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
