Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to visit Montclair and Newark this Friday to discuss child care -- a key part of President Joe Biden's spending bill stuck in Congress.
The proposal would provide free pre-K for 3 and 4-year-olds, increase salaries for child care workers and lower costs of child care.

It also extends the tax credit for people taking care of children or other dependents. The spending plan would expand and hold down the cost of child care to make it easier for women to work outside the home.
The vice president will also urge Americans to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
