This is what happened at the Committee on Children, Families and Elder Affairs

The Florida Senate’s Committee on Children, Families, and Elder Affairs convened on December 7, 2011. A link to the committee’s page, along with audio of the hearing, is here: http://www.flsenate.gov/committees/show/cf

Notable events:

  • Senate Bill 434 to modify the IL Program to an extended foster care model was approved.
  • Alan Abramowitz presented on the GAL Program’s NICE Pilot (GALs driving children) and received a commitment to creating legislative language to preclude judges from ordering GALs to drive and language stating that a GAL’s driving does not relieve the CBCs of any duties they otherwise owe to the child.
  • OPPAGA gave a rushed overview of current the current IL Program, but technical difficulties made it unbearable to listen to at the end.
