As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions on September 18, 2013
S. 1086 would amend and reauthorize through fiscal year 2020 the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990. Specifically, it would authorize the appropriation of such sums as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of that program and add additional requirements to the program. The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) program was initially authorized through 2002 and has been authorized in annual appropriation acts since then. It is currently authorized through 2014 by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 (Public Law 113-76).
