SUMMARY OF BILL
REPORTED FROM COMMITTEE
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.
The bill would have no fiscal impact on State or local government.
This analysis was prepared by nonpartisan Senate staff for use by the Senate in its deliberations and does not constitute an official statement of legislative intent.
