Legislative Summary

The Commission to Study Residential Placement of Children was created by an act of the 2005 Legislature (HB 2334) to achieve systematic reform for youth at risk of out-of-home residential placement and to establish an integrated system of care for these youth and their families. This focus was broadened with several recommendations made by the Commission in its May 2006 report Advancing New Outcomes that include all children and their families in out-of-home placement and those at risk of out-of-home placement.

In 2010, the Legislature passed SB 636 to reconstitute the Commission.  This Legislative Bill, in addition to the original study areas, includes addressing any ancillary issues relative to foster care placement and requires a reduction in out of state placements.
