Rep. Bass

This bill would preserve the aspects of child welfare laws that have proven effective, while updating child welfare policy so more children can safely and expeditiously leave foster care for safe, stable, and permanent family. The bill would reduce the number of children in foster care without legal family and increase permanency options so fewer youth age out of foster care.
