(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington state lawmakers are being asked to provide more funding for childcare in the state.  Childcare professionals say they're feeling the pinch with the increase in the state minimum wage.  Childcare advocates are hoping the state will provide 80-million in additional state dollars for childcare services over the next two years.  Supporters of the increased subsidy say the 80-million-dollars would help childcare facilities offset the costs of the rising minimum wage and build a sustainable industry.
