MOORHEAD (KFGO/PRAIRIE PUBLIC) – A Moorhead lawmaker says as much of the nation prepares to go over what’s being called a “daycare cliff,” Minnesota is well poised to meet the ongoing challenges.
State Sen. Rob Kupec said part of the challenge comes from COVID relief funds which are set to expire.
Kupec said childcare is one of the biggest workforce issues in the state and – for working parents – daycare is vital, but expensive. It is something he said lawmakers tried addressing in last year’s legislative session.
