Minnesota senators took nearly 17 hours to approve a bill allowing childcare providers and personal care attendants to unionize.
The bill passed 35-32 a little after 8 a.m. today after senators debated it continuously since Tuesday afternoon.
State Representative Mary Franson (R-Alexandria) released the following statement on the Minnesota Court of Appeals decision that found Governor Dayton and the Bureau of Mediation Services to be liable for attorneys’ fees to home-based childcare providers – the plaintiffs – in the childcare unionization lawsuit:

Parents searching for child care for their baby, a son concerned about his mother’s adult day care program, family members evaluating services for their sibling with developmental disabilities — all of these consumers now have 24/7 access to important information about licensed programs with the expansion of information available on the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) website.
