Almost all child care facilities are small businesses. However, because this amendment would not remove or add to any of the requirements for child care programs, the Department does not anticipate that this rule will result in any new costs or savings to child care programs operated by small businesses.

Because this amendment does not add to or remove any of the requirements for child care providers, the Department does not anticipate any new costs or savings to entities or persons that are not small businesses.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
