Priola Bill to Remove Barriers for Child Care Professionals Passes Senate

DENVER — Today, the Senate unanimously passed Senator Kevin Priola's (R-Brighton) bill to remove barriers to employment for child care professionals.

House Bill 17-1135 allows child care workers to carry their approved finger-print based criminal background check across Colorado. 

HB 1135 reduces barriers to employment, allows more highly-qualified child care workers to quickly receive credentials to resume taking care of Colorado kids, and lowers the cost of child care for middle class families.


"As a father of four, I know that our kids are our most precious resource and we have to do everything we can to ensure their protection and education," said Priola. "Reducing barriers to employment to help more of our highly-qualified child care professionals who have already passed state background checks get back to the important business of taking care of our children is an example of good government getting out of the way to help our state flourish."

House Bill 17-1135 now moves on the governor's desk for approval.
