                                                                                         SUMMARY OF BILL

                                                                         REPORTED FROM COMMITTEE










House Bill 5044 (as reported without amendment)

Sponsor:  Representative Ranjeev Puri

House Committee:  Families, Children, and Seniors

Senate Committee:  Economic and Small Business Development




The bill would enact a new law to require the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) to develop a contract model for infant and toddler child care providers that could be funded within the Federal Child Care and Development Block Grant requirements and that would have to be awarded to certain providers in all regions of the State.

The bill would have an indeterminate fiscal impact on the State and no fiscal impact on local units of government. The MDE would experience increased administrative costs to develop a contract model for infant and toddler child care providers and to submit reports to the legislature. In Public Act 87 of 2021, $36.5 million was appropriated for infant and toddler contracts for two years. The bill would not require a specific amount of appropriation for infant and toddler contracts; the amount would be subject to future appropriation.
