Department of Public Welfare--Subsidized Child Day Care Eligibility Head Start Expansion; Regulation No. 14-482

   On February 4, 2004, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this regulation from the Department of Public Welfare (Department). This rulemaking amends 55 Pa. Code by adding § 3040.29. Notice of proposed rulemaking was omitted for this regulation; it will become effective upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

   This regulation establishes eligibility requirements for subsidized child day care for children enrolled in the Federal Head Start program whose parents or caretakers need extended hours and days of Head Start services to work. The Department is required to promulgate this regulation under Act 48 of 2003.

   We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the Department (24 P. S. § 15-1505-D) and the intention of the General Assembly. Having considered all of the other criteria of the Regulatory Review Act, we find promulgation of this regulation is in the public interest.

By Order of the Commission:

   This regulation is approved.
