"The Office of Children's Services estimates that passage of this legislation will result in an increase in federal Title IV-E receipts of $500,000 in fiscal year 2005."
- Sen. Green

 

"An Act relating to certain determinations concerning placement of a child in emergency custody and temporary placement hearings in child-in-need-of-aid proceedings; and providing for an effective date."

Current state law provides for the Court to determine, within 48 hours of removal from the home, whether probable cause exists for believing a child is in need of aid and to authorize a child's temporary placement out of the home. However, the language used by the courts in making determination varies and is often not in compliance with federal requirements. Senate Bill 288 mandates the Court to specifically use the language that continued placement in the home is "contrary to the welfare" of the child when exercising its authority to remove a child in need of aid. This legislation ensures that state law complies with federal requirements.

By requiring Contrary to the Welfare language in the first Court order following removal, the Office of Children's Services has the opportunity to increase federal reimbursement through the Title IV-E program for the care of the child and associated expenditures incurred by OCS for managing the foster care program. The Office of Children's Services estimates that passage of this legislation will result in an increase in federal Title IV-E receipts of $500,000 in fiscal year 2005.
