I do want to share the concern about what I also think is a lack of funding in terms of implementing the new child-care regs and given the extraordinary demand out there. One related question to that, however, what would, or do you know what the number would be if we brought the childcare market rates up to 75 percent? Do you know what that might cost? I know you did say where it's about 69 or so right now. If we brought it up to the 75th percentile, is there an estimate as to what that might be in funds?" Assemblymember Fahy asked Sheila J.
