House Bill 277 that, if passed, will require all Alabama daycare's to be state licensed. HB277 did receive a favorable committee report. We are working hard to oppose it and have meetings scheduled. PLEASE contact House Members and tell them to oppose HB277.

Yesterday, March 7, 2017, I along with our lawyer met with proponents of HB277. It was not a good meeting. They were not cooperative and at times condescending. They seemed intent on pushing the bill as is without any compromise. Money, not child safety seemed to be their goal. We are pressing ahead to make our case to house members. PLEASE CONTINUE TO CONTACT THEM!


We are proclaiming April 10-15, 2017 as CELEBRATE CHURCH CHILDCARE WEEK. We are asking you to bring 15-20 persons from your ministry to the Alabama State House on either April 11, 12, or 13 to talk to Legislators and express your opposition to House Bill 277.
