Florida Independent Living Bill Now in House’s Hands

Done! SB 434 is already in messages with the House. The amendments in the Senate were as follows:

  • explicitly made DCF guardian of the person of a child in its custody
  • updated the legislative purpose
  • required a plan for health care coordination and “connection to a positive adult”
  • removed $25 minimum for RTI
  • extended adoption assistance through age 20 for adoptive parents of kids in school
  • clarified that kids eligible for Medicaid are not to be enrolled in Kid Care
