Capitol notebook: Committee opposes child care union dues deductions
ST. PAUL -- Heather Falk successfully pleaded with a Minnesota House committee Tuesday to ban deducting union dues from state child care assistance funds.
"Nothing should come from those low-income families," the Cloquet in-home child care provider said.
The Republican-dominated committee agreed with Falk on a 12-7 party-line vote after nearly two hours of partisan debate. The bill now awaits action in the full House.
