(WASHINGTON, D.C.)  An amendment that is intended to help weed out duplication, overlap and inefficiencies in federal early learning and child-care programs, introduced by Wyoming’s senior US Senator Mike Enzi, was appoved this week by the Senate.  Enzi explained that the Government Accountability Office has identified 45 federally funded early learning and child-care programs; mostly administered by the Departments of Education and Health and human Services.  However, he says there are multiple programs administered by multiple agencies with very similar goals. “You’ve got to believe that we’ve got to be able to do some consolidation there,” says Enzi.  He says streamlining programs to eliminate duplication is essential for program integrity and  and good governing. The amendment is now part of a bill that reauthorizes child-care and development block-grant funding.
