LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2250, as introduced, Thurmond. Child welfare services.
Existing law establishes a system of statewide child welfare services, administered by the State Department of Social Services and county child welfare agencies, with the intent that all children are entitled to be safe and free from abuse and neglect. Existing law defines “child welfare services” for these purposes to mean public social services that are directed toward the accomplishment of various purposes, including protecting and promoting the welfare of all children, including disabled, homeless, dependent, or neglected children. Existing law requires social workers to make reasonable efforts to collect and update necessary data regarding a child’s incarcerated parent or parents, and encourages the Department of Justice, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, county welfare departments, and county sheriffs to develop protocols for facilitating the exchange of information regarding the location and sentencing of the incarcerated parent or parents of a minor child who is in dependency care.
This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to establish a multidepartment workgroup that would focus on coordinating support for children with incarcerated parents.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
