Gallahan: Accessible and Affordable Child Care For New York Families is Essential

A Statement from Assemblyman Jeff Gallahan (R,C-Manchester) in response to an Assembly Minority Conference press conference about reducing costs and increasing access to child care in New York state on March 11, 2024.

“I am proud to support my colleagues in the Assembly Minority Conference to enhance child care access and affordability for parents and children throughout our state. Child care is essential to ensure youth statewide receive proper early education, and parents and new mothers should not be deterred due to a lack of available providers and unaffordability. This needs to change so child care is accessible to all New Yorkers regardless of their financial situation.”
