House Bill 4218 (Substitute H-1 as reported without amendment)

Sponsor:  Representative Eric Leutheuser

House Committee:  Judiciary

Senate Committee:  Judiciary




The bill would add Section 14d to the Social Welfare Act to specify that in a juvenile residential care facility operated by a court that was located in a county with a population of less than 50,000, a direct care worker would be qualified, and would have to be allowed, to work in the facility if he or she had completed high school or obtained a general equivalency diploma (GED).


The bill specifies that, if an administrative rule conflicted with the proposed section, Section 14d would prevail.
