The House Committee on Education and Labor has completed drafting their section of the Build Back Better Act which invests $761 billion to lower the cost of childcare and education, help Americans secure well-paying jobs, and set a strong foundation for children.
Democrats currently aim to vote on the Build Back Better Act, also known as the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package by the end of the month, aligning with a vote on the bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure bill.
Among other things, the bill provides:
- $450 billion for childcare and pre-K
- Universal pre-K for three- and four-year-olds
- Lowering the cost of childcare
- $35 billion in child nutrition programs to help prevent child hunger
