|Rep. Ron Peters|
The purpose of HB 1359 by Rep. Ron Peters, R-Tulsa, is to review the state’s foster care system and to make recommendations to the Legislature and Governor on the areas of the system that need improvement.
The recommendations will include identification of desired outcomes for children and families in the system, best practices to assist in achieving the outcomes, accountability standards used to measure success in meeting the outcomes and an estimated cost for implementing the recommendations.
The measure now goes to the state Senate for consideration.
