Congress Looks to Cut Cost of Child Care
(Undated) -- As child-care costs in this country continue to grow, so does the chorus of voices calling on Congress to take action. For many working families, the cost of child-care is one of their biggest monthly expenses and legislation to help ease that burden has been introduced in both the U-S House and Senate. Among those urging passage is Carla Moquin, president of the Parenting in the Workplace Institute. The cost of center-based child-care does vary widely from state to state, but the U-S average is now nearly 12-thousand dollars a year.
