  • “As a single mom, I know firsthand that we have a childcare crisis in this country,” Porter said. “My constituents in the 45th Congressional District have asked me to help them make childcare more affordable. My bill offers families a way to keep more of what they earn to pay for the childcare and elder care that allows them to work, and the work that parents do adds to the vitality and strength of our economy. I hope my colleagues will join me in supporting America’s working families.” (Source: Rep. Porter, Press Release, 3/28/19)
