House Speaker Catherine Hanaway remains confident the Legislature will pass a foster care bill and address the problems disclosed after the death of 2-year-old Dominic James. James died will in the care of state approved foster parents. The legislature responded with a bill last year. Governor Bob Holden vetoed it, sending lawmakers back to square one. Hanaway says bills working their way through both the House and Senate would fix the problems that came to light during the investigation into James’ death. Hanaway says she’s interested in getting a bill through the Legislature that Governor Holden will sign.
