Two State Senators who serve Western New York are urging Albany to increase funding to Erie County for a child care subsidy program that could help families who cannot afford child care on their own but earn too much to be eligible for other child care support.

Governor Cuomo has introduced new emergency regulations he says will improve the safety and accountability of child day care programs in New York State. The regulations define the conditions under which the state may revoke or suspend a provider's license and increase penalties for serious violations of child care health and safety standards.
