WASHINGTON D.C. (KSWO)- Some encouraging news for military families struggling with daycare expenses. A daycare tax credit has been endorsed by a House subcommittee.

It's the first clearance of many but the legislation would create an income tax for daycare expenses spent by families of deployed military. The bill would authorize a tax credit for daycare on a qualifying dependent child when a family member is deployed. It would apply to children 12 years or younger and would be limited to care not more than 12 hours a day.

The measure still has a few more hurdles to pass before it becomes law.

    A North Korean mid-range ballistic missile test-fire apparently failed Saturday, South Korea and the United States said, the third such flop just this month but a clear message of defiance as a U.S. supercarrier conducts tests in nearby waters.
