New Panel to Investigate Corporate Child Care

Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin has named a six-member panel to investigate and report on child care in the workplace. The group, comprised of business and labor leaders, will report to President Clinton this spring with examples of successful corporate child care programs and will also work to publicize those efforts. Panel member Sandy Weil said, "It's important that we surface what different companies or communities are doing so people can see it can be done." President Clinton plans to address the issue of child care in his State of the Union Address, proposing tax credits for businesses that offer child care, administration officials have said.
