WILLIAM BROMAN APPLAUDS HOUSE REPUBLICANS FOR INCREASING ACCESS TO CHILDCARE
DETROIT, MI (June 17, 2016) – Today William Broman, candidate for State Representative in District 1 covering Grosse Pointe, Harper Woods, and Detroit issued the following statement regarding increased funding for Great Start by House Republicans in the FY 2017 Budget:
“Michigan House Republicans are to be commended for increasing access to childcare assistance programs for some of Michigan’s poorest neighbors. This is especially important for cities like Detroit, and is evidence of Republican commitment to urban areas. Increasing access to childcare will ensure a solid foundation for future K-12 education for Michigan children and protect our future investments in the classroom.”
In the FY 2017 budget as passed by the House and Senate, House Republicans allocated an additional $7.7 million to increase the entrance threshold for childcare assistance under the Great Start program from 121% to 125% of the federal poverty level.
Broman hosts weekly happy hour discussions, “Politics on the Patio” at Atwater in the Park (1175 Lakepointe, Grosse Pointe Park, MI 48230) each Wednesday from 5-7p.
