HB 4491 passed the Illinois House!!

This afternoon, the Illinois house voted 110-0 in favor of HB 4491, which allows for staffing flexibility the first and last hour of the day!!!

This is a HUGE WIN for childcare, and we want to take some time to thank Representative Faver Dias for sponsoring this bill and spending countless hours working with ILDOCC and advocating for the needs of childcare centers during this staffing crisis. This success would not be possible without her hard work and passion for this legislation.

So what’s next??

The bill will now head to the Illinois Senate. We will keep everyone up to date as more information comes, but we are hopeful for the future!!

If you want to see this work continue and more bills like it, please be sure to join now as a paid member. We need your support to continue making these moves for directors and owners across the state!
