INTRODUCED

HB 1981 -- Expedited Permanent Placements of Children

Co-Sponsors:  Hartzler (124), Gross, Champion, Cierpiot, Holand,

This bill requires that placement hearings for children who are
the subject of termination of parental rights proceedings or
adoption proceedings be given priority over all other civil
litigation except Division of Family Services' child protection
cases.  The bill also requires that, in appeals of child
placement decisions, the trial transcript must be provided to
the appellate court within 30 days of filing the appeal, only
one extension may be granted to either party, and the appellate
court must issue a ruling within 30 days of oral arguments.
