The Board was established to study the following topics:
(1) The need for changes in the scope and degree of child care regulation established by statute or rule.
(2) The need to reorganize governmental units involved in the regulation of child care facilities to promote effective and efficient child care regulation, including the form that a needed reorganization should take.
(3) A method for the completion of a statewide needs assessment to determine the availability and projected need for safe and affordable child care.
(4) The need for programs to meet the needs of Indiana residents if the board determines that safe and affordable child care facilities are not available and easily accessible.
(5) The effect of federal legislation on child care and the need for statutory changes to qualify for federal child care grants and to comply with federal child care requirements.
(6) The immunization rates at licensed child care centers to determine if children at the centers have received age appropriate immunizations.
