Topping Missouri's child support committee's agenda is a bill that encourages easier access to child care. Jennifer Horton has the story from Jefferson City.
The bill allows companies to claim up to $100,000 in tax exemption for providing day care.
Representative Pat Dougherty says the bill will help many single parents forced to find work under new federal welfare laws.
The bill also requires companies to allow employees to pay for the child care on a sliding scale...to compensate for lower salaries.
