Item 2
Bill Tracking, Additional Documents Chamber Status

Amend the bill by striking out all of sections 2 to 9 and inserting the following:

Sec. 2. 22 MRSA §8301-A, sub-§1-A, ¶C,  as amended by PL 2005, c. 530, §7, is further amended to read:

C. "Family child care provider" means a person who provides day care in that person's home on a regular basis, for consideration, for 3 5 to 12 children under 13 years of age who are not the children of the provider or who are not residing in the provider's home. If a provider is caring for children living in that provider's home and is caring for no more than 2 4 other children, the provider is not required to be certified as a family child care provider.’


This amendment is the minority report of the committee. It retains only those sections of the bill that allow a person who receives a child care subsidy to make up the difference between the amount of the subsidy and the total cost of the child care without losing the subsidy and allow a person to care for up to 4 children in the person's home without that person being required to become certified as a family child care provider.
