Child care is a high priority issue for Utah citizens. Lack of access to child care continues to increase as the number of house households needing two incomes to make ends meet grows. This lack of consistent and reliable child care negatively effects not only children and families in Utah, but all residents by limiting our state’s economic development.
HB 333 will help more working families in Utah get childcare support by allowing the Governor’s Office of Economic Development to consider whether an employer will provide “working parent benefits” when awarding certain economic development tax credits. This bill passed unanimously in committee – let’s help it pass in a full House vote BEFORE 4PM TODAY!
