Under the guise of Simon's Law, Jill Schuup inserted "her will" over all those who wish to go into the Daycare Business.

Jill Schuups Bill 397 causes HUGE increases in Daycare Costs



Dear Honorable Representative Coleman,

 

            I sincerely appreciate you following up on an email personally.

Here are some of my thoughts on the Amendment Jill Schupp inserted into your bill. Mind you, your Sex Trafficking Bill as far as I can tell, was a good bill and well needed. Schupp has been trying to get her Bill on this passed for a decade, to no avail as it has many issues that effect Family and Taxes that go unresolved.

Please see the following ideas to work for the betterment of childcare.

 

Typically, Family Home Daycares sprout up for several reasons.

  • Parents fear the public daycares but cannot afford to stay at home with their kids, so they take on a few others for revenue to supplement the family budget. College loans are a huge issue for todays young adults.

  • There are health needs within the immediate family or elderly care is needed and they must stop working but need income.

  • Parents kids are being kicked out of public daycares, (this typically surrounds the hard to handle children). So, they start their own or seek home daycares.

  • Previous Teachers fed up with the system – decide to get out of teaching however income needs prevent them from going backwards in salary (public childcare employees are poorly paid) so they start their own daycare.

  • Some choose daycare as a career.

  • Consistency in care is important for children and public daycares do not offer One childcare individual for the term of their child’s infant to kindergarten needs.

  • Or they have more kids needing daycare than they can afford themselves.

     

    The Cons of Schupp’s Amendment:

     

  1. Punishes all Licensed included, for the failures of the few typically non-licensed.

  2. Has government interfering in the family unit.

  3. Forces grandparents to charge their children for daycare or lose income.

  4. Eliminates hard sought out, trusted daycare for families

  5. Eliminates revenue from daycare family budgets with only 3 weeks’ notice. Ex: I charge $120/week, with 21 weeks of lost revenue due to the loss of one already licensed spot, immediately my family loses $2520. That cannot be recouped but needed to pay bills. $6000.00 lost to the budget for a year, and this is only for One grandchild.

  6. Increases daycare costs to daycare customer families, giving them less money to spend on family needs, thus increases the cost to family budgets as well. Ex: If cost of daycare goes up $30 to recoup losses, then parents will lose an additional $1530.00 out of their yearly budgets. So much for tax reforms, huh?

  7. Does not consider affordability of daycare for parents in varying diverse regions. A Ladue daycare may charge $500/ week, St Charles daycare $250, a North City Daycare $50-$75 to avoid need for state subsidies.

  8. Thus, Forces Daycare costs and pricing to increase, to recoup future losses

  9. Ultimately costs ALL of the taxpayer’s additional money as State Subsidies are based on the average costs of daycare in the state.

  10. In cases of Non-Licensed Daycares, it limits the number of children families can give birth to, and care for as well as limits their grandparents from watching more than 6 of their grandkids. (you see if your neighbor calls you into the state for watching your grandkids…they will investigate and act accordingly) how embarrassing would that be?

  11. Gives Non-licensed daycares 2 additional children to care for, without licensing.

  12. Because this amendment was hidden into your sex trafficking bill, it was not on anyone’s radar to even have a chance to use our voices.

     

    Suggestions for amending the amendment:

     

  1. Licensed Daycare’s – put the language back in about related not counting in the numbers allowed, reducing it to children in the home (to include adopted/step) and whatever other words may be necessary to cover the parent’s children and grandparents. So, no 9th degree relationships just parents and grandparents. Evidenced through Birth Certificates/Adoption etc./gov paperwork to be accepted.

  2. Unlicensed Daycares- Limit set at their own kids/grandkids (same proof needed) plus SPACE LIMITATION. Ex: licensed gets one kid per 35sq ft inside and 75sq ft outside. So, if you had space for 10 and 8 of your own kids, they could watch 2. Or put a max of 4 nonfamily members that they could watch. Right now, they are rewarded with 2 extra kids. If the purpose is to discourage non-licensed, then it should be reduced to 2 nonfamily members.

  3. Add a hefty fine for failure to license, if found above these numbers to deter. But unless you find a way to ensure every person is informed, I suggest a warning fine 1st, then a heftier one.

  4. You could set this as a state standard that all smaller governments within, must follow and update their codes to. This would put more eyes on the solution. Currently only the understaffed State workers have eyes on. Smaller governments are the eyes of the state for law enforcement.

     

    Again,

    Thank you for your personal follow-up,

This Bill 397 states Daycares must count their own children and Grandchildren in their allowed numbers.

 

Thus if allowed 10 and have 1 relative age 5 and under, then our numbers are reduced by 1 to 9 allowed. But what happens when more grandchildren or children for those younger daycare owners… 10 to 8, 10 to 7, 10 to 6 etc.

 

Prices are typically based on Budget needs thus,

when you calculate out the current price in my daycare $120/week minus the 1 spot not allowed anymore...

It eliminates in this case $6,240.00 per spot, per year out of a budget.

 

CAN ANY OF YOU AFFORD TO CUT $6,240.00 OUT OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD BUDGET???

 

OF COURSE NOT, RIGHT?

 

THUS, THIS BILL WILL CAUSE INCREASES IN THE COST OF DAYCARE.

THIS BILL WILL CAUSE INCREASES IN DAYCARE SUBSIDIES GIVEN TO THOSE WHO CANNOT ALREADY AFFORD DAYCARE ALREADY, BY THE STATE OF MISSOURI. Just to make the same rate of income and be able to meet their household bills.

 

In my case $120 becomes $150 with one spot loss, $120 becomes $160 for a 2 spot loss, $120 becomes $175 for a 3 spot loss, $120 becomes $200 for a 4 spot loss… etc. and my rates have always been low purposefully to help those in my community afford daycare in a society where the norm home price is $160/week and the big daycares charge $280/week.

 

THUS, THIS BILL WILL CAUSE MORE OF YOUR TAX DOLLARS TO BE SPENT by our State Government!!!

This Bill 397 places a hardship on Daycare Owners and the Parents they serve.

 

A $20. increase/week to Parents equals $1,040.00 less to spend per year on their bills as well.

 

This Bill 397 will cause Parents who have already found legal daycare, to lose that daycare immediately upon Aug 30, 2019. No Notice given.

Causing Parents undue stress as well, due to Daycare Shortages.

In my case it will cause an immediate loss of $2,280.00 our of my 2019 Budget.

 

Remember this is affecting all daycares,

so, it will not be just a few parents that lose their services,

 it will be multiplied by all the daycares out there. ?????????????????

 

This will cause Daycare Shortages as well.

Jill has been trying to get this bill passed for years, now she stuck it within Simon's Law!

 

Because our legislature has NO Forethought....they passed this bill. So did the Govenor.

Did he read it???

 

Did the legislature read it?

Who knows....

 

We know that the County Council didn't read their bills we know, that  in 2016 for sure, they did not read the contract for the Election Board moving to the Crossings,

as the contract was not written till 9 days after they passed the Ordinance #26460

which can be see on You Tube on 7/12/16.

Vote by Council on Crossings/Election Board issue. Conversation occurs at 17:30 explaining the process, vote later in video at 43:51 apparently Dooley began the process. The vote was 5 yes 1 no with 1 absent. Each Councilman gave their opinion on this project, so listen to their words. Now in 2018 they hold hearing on this project and tell the media they were duped.

Government is not protecting our tax dollars!
