ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Sue Martin, the owner of Miss Ann's daycare on Palmyra Road says taking care of other people's children is an awesome responsibility.

While tragedies may occur, she believes Jace's law, which would require home day care centers to immediately close for inspection and investigation is a great tool to keeping other children safe. 

"I think it's a wonderful thing," said Miss Ann's Daycare Owner Sue Martin. "Anything to help protect the children, we're just all for and any new law that comes on the books that helps look after our children's welfare is what we're all about. So, we're very excited about the law. I think it's a good thing for any business where something has happened, they need to be shut down, see what happened before the children can actually be brought back."

Jace's law was drafted by Senator Freddie Powell Sims of Albany in memory of 4-month-old Jace Hester who died in a Lee County Home daycare center.

The bill passed the Senate unanimously. It is now being considered in the House.
