"licensing positions within the Department of Social Services,".


Explanation
(This amendment exempts licensing positions within the Department of Social Services from any administratively imposed hiring freeze. These positions are responsible for protecting the health, safety, and welfare of children in child day care family homes and facilities, and adults in adult care residences. The 1997 JLARC report on child day care found that the Department was dilatory in filling vacant licensing positions and that the Department was out of compliance with statutorily required licensing visits to child day care facilities.)
