House Supports Extending Foster Care Payments As Funding Search Continues

The House on Tuesday approved a measure to extend foster care and adoption assistance payments to age 21, however the proposal lacks a funding source to achieve that goal.

The bill's sponsor, Rep. Dorothy Pelanda (R-Marysville), has said it was necessary to remove any funding in the bill and simply set a July 1, 2017 deadline for finding financial backing in order to get the measure onto the floor and over to the Senate. (See Gongwer Ohio Report, November 16, 2015)
