Missouri House backs limits on child care rating system

Tuesday, May 8, 2012 | 4:38 p.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri House has approved a measure intended to block rating systems from being used at child care centers and preschools.

The child care measure passed Tuesday is tied to legislation that also would create a dedicated funding stream for state veterans' homes. Both items have been at the center of a legislative logjam that so far has prevented the state's $24 billion budget from passing.

Some Republican lawmakers want to stop the implementation of a five-star rating system developed at MU. They contend it could wrongly put some child care centers at a disadvantage.

The House attached the child care and veterans' measure as an amendment Monday to a bill dealing with the state militia. That bill now must go back to the Senate.
