Senate Committee Passes Foster Care Bill

The Kentucky Senate Health and Welfare Committee has unanimously approved a bill to help 18-year-olds transition from foster care to independent living. Senator Ken Winters of Murray sponsored the bill. He says it would allow youths to consult with state personnel six months before they turn 18 about whether they want to remain in foster care.
