Foster Child Sibling Visit Bill Goes to Governor

The Senate gave final passage today to HB 1006, which guarantees children in foster care the right to have visits with their siblings.

The bill sailed through both chambers of the General Assembly and now heads back to the House to consider a Senate amendment before it can go to Gov. Bill Ritter.

Ritter hasn't publicly said whether he will sign it. However, there has not been any indication of opposition from the administration.
