The History and Current Status of Federal Legislation Pertaining to Day Care Programs.
Searcy, Ellen O.; Ouellet, Ronald
This report is a brief summary of the history of Federal Day Care provisions through the sixties and an analysis of the child care legislation pending in Congress during 1971. The 92nd Congress, in attempts to answer the growing demands for Federally-sponsored child care, introduced four separate bills dealing with child care financing: HR. 1 (Social Security Amendments of 1971), S. 2003 (Child Care Services Act of 1971), S. 2007 (Economic Opportunity Amendments of 1971), and the H.R. 10351 (Comprehensive Child Development Act). Materials outlining the major points and significant differences in H.R. 1 and S. 2003 appear in Appendix B, and key differences between H.R. 10351 and S. 2007 are outlined in Appendix C. The report highlights areas of agreement in the bills, and indicates specific measures where compromise is needed. (CS)
