AUSTIN (KXAN) — Keeping your child safe at daycare is making its way through the state Capitol. One bill wants to add new rules to registered day cares inside homes. It would require owners to have their fingerprints taken so the state can perform a sex offender background check.
It’s just the latest step in daycare protection. A year ago — after a KXAN Investigation — the state hired 40 full-time investigators to inspect day cares across Texas.
