Governor Andrew Cuomo is looking to make it easier for parents to pick a safe day care for their children.

Under the governor's proposed law, the maximum fine for serious violations would increase from $500 to $5,000 a day.

The proposed law would also increase transparency so that parents can easily access more information about day cares.

The bill would also allow the state to revoke a center's license for a wide range of violations.

The law still needs to be passed by the legislature.
