(This amendment provides $50,000 from the general fund each year to cover costs related to proposed SB 472. The proposed bill would alter requirements regarding the termination of parental rights and require the Board of Social Services to promulgate regulations associated with the alterations. The bill would also include other requirements, including the need to provide additional information to parents regarding their ability to voluntarily terminate parental rights, provide training to local boards and child-placing agencies regarding common errors made related to termination of parental rights, and establish a workgroup to study the feasibility and costs of establishing supervisory spans of control for foster care supervisors.)
