Vt. House speaker to focus on child care next session
MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont House Speaker Jill Krowinski says she’s taking lessons learned during a summit about child care with her to the Statehouse come January.
Krowinski and Lt. Governor Molly Gray held a summit last week of policymakers and advocates to talk about child care, working families, the caregiving economy, and universal access to paid family leave.
Gray says without universal paid family and medical leave and universal, affordable child care access, Vermonters will continue to be forced to choose between caring for loved ones, their own health and safety, and a paycheck.
Krowinski says policy discussions about these programs will be diligent and thorough.
