Last Updated: 2/19/2010
Budget Issue: Governor proposes lowering reimbursement ceilings for licensed child care providers from 85th percentile to 75th percentile of regional market rates (RMR) using 2005 RMR survey data.
Program: California Department of Education
Finding or Recommendation: Reject Governor's proposal. Instead use the 2009 RMR survey and set reimbursement ceilings at whatever level is roughly comparable to current-law rates. We estimate this would be at about the 60th percentile of the 2009 RMR.
