Local input for the state's child care plan

Albany- Every two years the state has to submit a plan for how to use federal money for child care and development programs.

Tuesday night in Albany, the Department of Human Resources held a hearing to get public input. Many expressed the need for the state to help the working poor with child care expenses.

"This is the draft that we have created and we are listening to public comments and we can receive written comments until May 9th," says Gail Ormsby of the Georgia Department of Human Resources.

All comments from Tuesday's hearing will be recorded and sent to state child welfare leaders who will consider them before coming up with a final plan.
