House overrides day care veto

WASHINGTON U(P) - The
House voted 301 to 101 yesterday
to override President Ford's
veto of a bill providing $125
million to help the states meet
new federal standards for child
day care centers.
The measure now goes to the
Senate, where a vote on over-
riding the veto is expected to-
day.
IN VETOING the bill last
month, Ford said it would "per-
petuate rigid federal child day-
care standards for all the states
and localities in the nation, with
the cost to be paid by the
federal taxpayer."
Ford urged Congress to enact
his own program under which
states would establish and en-
force their own day care stan-
dards.
Ford has vetoed 48 bills and
has been overriden eight times.
The day care centers look
after children of working moth-
ers and have been cited as one
way women with small children
can get off welfare rolls and
into jobs without leaving their
children unattended.
The House vote on the bill was
33 votes more than the required

two-thirds majority to override
the veto.
WHEN THE roll was called
243 Democrats were joined by
58 Republicans on the winning
side, overpotwering 24 Democrats
and 77 Republicans.
The bill would suspend uptil
July 1 a requirement that child
day-care centers, to qualify for
federal funds, must meet federal
standards on staff persons on
hand for children aged six weeks
to six years old. A previous
suspension, enacted last October,
expired Feb. 1.
The s t a f f i n g requirements
range from one child per staff
member for the youngest child-
ren to seven youngsters per
staff member for children be-
tween four and six years old.
UNDER THE bill, a present
$2.5 billion annual limit on so-
cial-service program f u n ds
would be boosted by $125 million
through Sept. 31, with $100 mil-

lion being allocated to states
based on population and the rest
split according to their need for
aid in meeting standards.
The bill also extends and ds '
incentives for the day care cen-
ters to hire welfare recipients
in meeting staff needs. Under
these provisions, states could
reimburse the centers for the
cost of employing welfare recip-

ients up to $5,000 annually ;er

During Ilosie debate yester-
day, Ways and Means Commit-
tee Chairman Al Ullman (D-
Ore.) said the legislation "is an
effort of Congress to delay stan-
dards" and to "provide some
financial relief for states." But
Rep. Guy VanderJagt (R-Mioh.)
termed the legislation an ".1lus-

Rep. Robert Michel (R-II.)
said the bll would "mandate
costly, inflexible standards," but
Rep. James Jones (D-kla.)
treed giving "states and day
care centers the funds they need
to meet the regutlations ' by
oerriding the veto.
