The Act for Better Child Care Services of 1988, additional views of members of the United States Senate, and related materials are reported. The purpose of the Act is to increase the availability, affordability, and quality of child care throughout the nation. The legislation provides direct financial assistance to low-income and working families to help them find and afford quality child care services for their children. The act also contains provisions designed to enhance the quality and increase the supply of child care available to all parents, including those who receive no direct financial assistance under the act. The report also provides background information, rationale, and history of the legislation; a list of hearings on the bill; votes in committee; a cost estimate; and a regulatory impact statement. It is the view of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources that the Federal Government's most crucial role is to strengthen the child care infrastructure in the United States to improve the quality of services and make them more available and more affordable than they are at present.
