School Age Licensure Exemption (SB 2321)

SB 2321 was sent to the governor on June 24th and signed into law on July 29th. Congratulations to all who worked so tirelessly in support of this bill. Public Act 099-699 provides crucial exemptions to childcare licensing standards for afterschool and summer programs. Without this law, exempted programs that have been running well for years would have been required to become licensed, which could have forced some programs to close. ACT Now will continue to work with state agency partners and providers on implementation of this law and will share updates when they are available.
