GCCA Works to Halt Bill that Would Expand Exemptions
GCCA lobbied against SB 24 which looked to expand exemptions for the youngest population of children. We worked with the bill sponsor and educated them about the safety concerns of this bill. The bill was pulled for further vote! Success!
SB 24 (McKoon-29th) Bill to EXPAND exemptions from licensure ; nursery schools, playschools, kindergarten programs, and other educational programs who serve children 0-2 years old for four consecutive hours per day and up to 20 hours per week. (Current exemption rules limit 0-2 year-olds to four hours per day up to 8 hours per week.)GCCA Opposes this bill and have met with Chairman of Senate Committee. We are working to KILL this bill!
