House Approves Legislation to Improve Child Services

Share this post

A bill intended to improve child services in Indiana unanimously passed the House of Representatives Tuesday. Senate Bill 164 would permit prosecuting attorneys to file a Child-In-Need-Of Services petition with a juvenile court, which would start legal action that allows the state to intervene to protect a child, an ability prosecutor had until July of 2009, when the Department of Child Services became the only one able to file such a petition. The bill now returns to the Senate for concurrence or the establishment of a conference committee.
