Senate Gives Preliminary Approval to Foster Child Sibling Visit Bill

The Senate gave preliminary approval to a bill that requires social services agencies in Colorado to permit foster children visits with their siblings.

HB 1006 passed by consent on second reading, meaning there was no opposition to the bill. It faces one more reading in the Senate and then goes to the Governor, where it may become the first bill enacted into law this session.

The bill is sponsored by Rep. Cheri Jahn, D-Golden, and Sen. Paula Sandoval, D-Denver.
