CHICAGO – Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will address the need for public pension reform on Saturday at the Women’s Business Development Center’s annual Child Care Business Expo. Without reform, rising pension costs will squeeze out funding for other government expenses, putting child care funding for low-income families at risk, Simon says.

The Child Care Business Expo offers child care businesses the opportunity to gain critical information about the  industry and meet with government officials, financial advisors, child care related companies, vendors and industry experts. The Women’s Business Development Center provides programs and services to support and accelerate women’s business ownership, strengthening the impact of women on the economy.

EVENT: Women’s Business Development Center’s annual Child Care Business Expo

DATE: Saturday, June 2

TIME: 8:10 a.m.

LOCATION: University of Illinois Chicago Forum, 725 West Roosevelt Road, Chicago

NOTE: Simon will speak at 8:10 a.m., present awards at 9:15 a.m. and cut a ribbon to officially open the Expo’s exhibition at 10 a.m.
