Religious Organization Child Care Licensing Exemption

Concerning the application of child care licensing requirements for religious organizations for the time period during which services or programs are being offered.
2018 Regular Session
Children & Domestic Matters
Human Services
Bill Summary

Current law allows a child care licensing exemption for certain facilities, including shopping centers and churches, that provide on-site child care for children for less than 3 hours while people are making use of the facility or attending church services. The bill retains the 3-hour limit on the licensing exemption for facilities like shopping centers but increases the time limit for religious organizations to 6 hours, provided that the child care is being offered contemporaneously with services or other programs at the on-site child care location of the religious organization.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
