A judge has blocked DHS from implementing an unpopular fingerprint scanning plan for some Mississippi child care centers

The rule would have required some parents to use a fingerprint scanner to sign children in and out of child care centers that receive federal subsidies. The fingerprint scanner rule had a very low compliance rate, with many child care centers simply opting out of the federal subsidy program rather than go along with it. The ruling from Hinds County Chancery Court judge Denise Owens said that the state’s economic impact statement for the program is so incomplete that it does not meet the requirements of state law.
