Kansas City Representative Mary Bland introduced a bill encouraging businesses to make affordable day care available to employees.

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.

Contents: We heard it first this year so it will get through the system.

The bill also requires companies to allow employees to pay for the child care on a sliding scale...to compensate for lower salaries.
