HB1576 is marching forward! This would not have been possible without YOU!
HB1576 has been appointed conferees and will be heard in Conference Committee meeting on April 16 in conference room 229 at the State Capitol. The Conference Committee will meet to resolve differences between the last House and Senate versions of the bill. As this is a decision making meeting only, no public testimony will be accepted.
ITAO will attend in case there are questions about IAC’s recommendations and let you know what, if any, actions we need to take from here.
The House Conferees are Representatives Carroll/Kobayashi, Co-Chairs; Morikawa, and Fukumoto. The Senate Conferees are Senators Chun Oakland, Chair; Ige, Co-Chair; Green, Keith-Agaran, and Slom.
We’re in the home stretch of this legislative session, but we still have a little ways to go. Thank you for all of your support! We will let you know when action needs to be taken on this bill that will raise the foster care reimbursement rate for the first time in 24 years!
Thank you for caring about the needs of our foster children and youth!
