House Select Committee on Affordable Child Care

This is a Legislative Committee. See Select Committee on Affordable Child Care (House)

Active dates:2016
Established by Representative Kurt Daudt, Speaker of the House

At the start of the 2016 legislative session, House Speaker Kurt Daudt announced the formation of a Select Committee on Affordable Child Care, to be chaired by Rep. Mary Franson. "Minnesota has many top-quality childcare providers who offer a safe, quality environment for children to learn, grow, and thrive," Franson said in the statement. "However, too many Minnesota families cannot find available or affordable child care in their community," she said. The committee will tour the outstate regions of Minnesota to talk to parents and childcare providers. 

The work of this select committee during the 2016 session led to the creation of the Legislative Task Force on Access to Affordable Child Care (see Laws of Minnesota 2016, chapter 174). That Task Force met throughout the latter part of 2016 and issued a report to the legislature in January 2017 with their findings and recommendations.

The Legislative Reference Library has the committee book minutes for this Select Committee's meetings.

Membership: Mary Franson (Chair); Dave Baker; Peggy Flanagan; Ron Kresha; Joe Mullery; John Persell; Tama Theis; Kelly Fenton
