PROMOTNG QUALITY CHLD CARE ACT                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Promoting Quality  Child  Care  Act.   Provides  that      
   certain  accredited child care providers currently under contract with      
   or receiving a subsidy from the Department of Human Services shall  be      
   paid  a  subsidy  rate 10% higher than the maximum rate established by      
   the Department which additional funds the Department may require to be      
   spent to maintain and achieve quality improvements.  Provides that the      
   Department shall establish a public-private  partnership  to  increase      
   the  number  of  accredited  programs serving families receiving child      
   care subsidies to fund (i)  grants  to  certain  licensed  child  care      
   providers to support program improvement plans necessary for achieving      
   or  maintaining  accreditation, (ii) fees for accreditation payable to      
   national accrediting bodies, and (iii) consultants  to  help  programs      
   gaining  or  maintaining  accreditation.  Provides that in order to be      
   eligible for funding under this public-private partnership,  at  least      
   25% of the children served by the program must be receiving child care      
   subsidies from the Department or the Department of Children and Family      
   Services.  Effective July 1, 2000.                                          
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that "child care center", "child care group  home",  and      
   "child  care home" are defined as in the Child Care Act of 1969.  Adds      
   reference to the Department of  Children  and  Family  Services  as  a      
   provider  of  funding  for child care in addition to the Department of      
   Human Services.  Removes reference to the subsidy rate to be  provided      
   to  child  care  group homes.  Changes the effective date from July 1,      
   2000 to July 1, 1999.
