Representative Jason Conger Pushes a Bill to Help Community College Students Pay for Childcare

The bill sponsored by State Representative Jason Conger would offer grants to community colleges to set up child care centers.  Students would get childcare on a sliding scale.

 

Cogner is hopeful the bill will pass.

 

"This program is a matching funds, grant program to try and help and incentivize students to stay in school.  Students who participate have to maintain a GPA set up by the college and must be progressing toward a certificate or degree."

 

Conger is optimistic the bill will pass with its bipartisan support.
