Representative Cheri Toalson Reisch of Hallsville is the sponsor of House Bill 2441, which would add provisions related to licensed daycare facilities in Missouri. She says this is in response to a recent law.

The bill would ease several regulations on licensed daycare facilities in the state. Toalson Reisch says there is a need for more licensed daycares in Missouri.

A similar bill is being sponsored in the Senate by Senator Cindy O’Laughlin.
