WHEREAS, the commitment of this Commonwealth to foster equal employment opportunities free from limitations based on sex has provided increased opportunity for parents with young children to contribute as valued employees in the public sector; and

WHEREAS, it is the responsibility of the Commonwealth to continue to assure such equal treatment and to develop such services which will work toward this end;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Edward J. King, Governor of the Commonwealth, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Supreme Executive Magistrate, do hereby order as follows:

Consideration shall be given, but not limited to, issues such as the actual demand for the establishment of such a program, the feasibility of allocating suitable space from government property, and proposed methods of supervision and funding for such a program.
  3. This survey shall be conducted at the direction of the Chairperson and Vice- Chairperson of the Governor's Commission on the Status of Women, according to such methods and standards as they shall deem appropriate.
  4. All state agencies and departments shall cooperate as their resources and expertise are called upon.
