Legislative Update

4.23.2010
We did it! On April 22, 2010, Senate File 2690/House File 3039 was signed into law. CLC has been actively supporting this bill, which contains specific policy changes that will benefit foster care youth and improve the child welfare system. Among its provisions, it clarifies that reviews of foster care matters must be held in court, so that children have an opportunity to participate, and it extends court jurisdiction over foster care cases up to age 21 for youth that choose to stay in foster care.
