Texas House passes child welfare reforms

Published on May 18, 2017 under CommunityImpact

Editor’s note: This story was updated May 19 to note that the Texas House gave Senate Bill 11 its final approval. The Texas House on Thursday passed a package of sweeping measures aimed at addressing a crisis in the state’s child welfare system. After a lengthy debate, the House passed Senate Bill 11, a measure that would have Texas shift to a “community-based care” model for handling some endangered children and allowing contracted organizations — not just the resources-strapped state — to monitor children in foster care and adoptive homes.Via Texas Tribune
