Unfortunately, "Nathan's Law" did not pass out of committee this year. We did have a hearing, that I testified at and thought had gone quite well. There was of course, Kerry Messer with Missouri Family Network, who opposed the bill. I am really not sure what to think of him. I don't understand why he doesn't want this bill to pass. I am not trying to regulate grandma, just people who are providing daycare as their business. I want to make sure the kiddos are safe!
Anyway, though the bill didn't pass again this year, I do believe our voices are being heard. Every year we receive more exposure. When I walk the halls of the capital to speak to all the Representatives & Senators, more and more have heard of "Nathan's Law". I know eventually it will pass and have told all of them, I will not stop until it is law.
So, next year, this bill will be filed again. I will continue my fight.
