HB 1852 Public Hearing


Event Details


HB 1852 | Relating To Certain Assessments For Children In The Conservatorship Of The Department Of Family And Protective Services
Authors: Rep. Elliott Naishtat & Rep. Cindy Burkett | HB 1852 Bill Summary

As the legislature focuses on strengthening Child Protective Services (CPS) this session, SB 125 would improve the assessment of children who are removed from their homes by CPS. Often, children in foster care receive a number of costly evaluations and psychotropic drugs, experience multiple placements and never find stability, permanency and healing. This legislation would ensure children are more quickly matched with the services they need, placed in appropriate settings, and not assessed and reassessed at great cost to the state. The schedule for the public hearing can be viewed here.
