Sen. Daniel Biss Announces Health, Child Care Policies
Illinois State Senator Daniel Biss is announcing a series of health and child care policies on Monday as he seeks the Democratic nomination for governor. Biss wants to expand state funding for child and senior care services, including a cap for out-of-pocket child care costs. He also wants the state to guarantee paid sick time and family leave for all Illinois workers. Biss says he wants to pay for his plan, in part, by increasing taxes on wealthier people and imposing a fee on financial transactions.
