COUNCIL BLUFFS, Ia. (KMTV) - There are two bills that recently passed the Iowa House of Representatives. One provides up to $3 million a year for tax credits for businesses to build or rehabilitate a child care center. The second gives tax breaks to industries or businesses that build an on-site child care center.
As the Legislature tackles the issue, Deb Martens with Child Care Resource & Referral calls the child care crisis "complicated" and multi-pronged."
