U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) on Tuesday highlighted the story of an Iowa child care provider that has struggled during COVID-19, something she’s heard from facilities across the state. The senator discussed her efforts to support Iowa child care providers and working families, including the nearly $32 million she already secured in the CARES Act and her new plan to help relieve anxiety for families by stabilizing the child care sector and ensuring our kids are in safe environments.
