Compromise has been the key to shape a foster care bill into a measure it appears both the House and Senate will approve and the Governor will sign. House Speaker Catherine Hanaway has been pushing a provision that would require a hearing before a judge within 72 hours of a child being removed from the home. When she ran into opposition, she compromised by agreeing to a provision that calls for the State Supreme Court to decide how it will work. A House-Senate negotiating team has agreed to versions of the foster care bill that they hope both chambers will approve. A member of Governor Bob Holden’s staff says it appears the bill meets the requirements of the Governor and will receive his signature.
