Legislative Update: Social Worker Protection and Family Visitation Centers

Deborah Yetter at the Courier-Journal has the latest on the proposed legislation to provide social worker protection and to establish more family visitation centers, House Bill 362. Bottom line? They're still working. I would say surely the broad support for this "Boni Bill" will result in legislation and funding, but nothing apparently is sure in Kentucky politics.

The legislative history is below the fold.
