House Bill 4082 (H-1) as adopted

Sponsor:  Rep. Daire Rendon

Committee:  Families, Children and Seniors

Revised 10-15-19


House Bill 4082 would amend 1973 PA 116, the child care licensing act, to require licensed child care entities to display a poster informing parents that the entity is required to use safe sleep practices[1] during child care hours.

Beginning 90 days after the bill’s effective date, each child care center, group child care home, and family child care home would have to conspicuously display a poster provided by the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) informing parents that the child care provider must use infant safe sleep practices during child care hours.

The required poster would have to include visual examples of both appropriate safe sleep practices and safe sleep violations. The poster would also have to display a phone number to report a safe sleep violation.

The bill would take effect 90 days after being enacted.

Proposed MCL 722.113i


House Bill 4082 would have an indeterminate fiscal impact on the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. The bill would require the department to provide infant safe sleep practices posters to all child care centers, group child care homes, and family child care homes. If the applicable child care entities were expected to obtain the poster from LARA’s website, then costs would be negligible and sufficiently supported by existing departmental appropriations. If LARA were required to provide physical copies of the poster, then the department would incur costs for printing and postage. The bill would require that the posters be displayed in approximately 8,630 licensed facilities.
