Current Bill Summary

SB 49 - For the purposes of determining which children are special needs children, so that an individual may receive a tax credit for adopting a special needs child, this act prohibits ethnic background or membership in a minority group from being the sole factor that is used to consider a child who cannot be returned to his parents' home a special needs child.

This act is identical to SB 712 (2012) and similar to a provision in SS/SCS/SBs 20, 15 & 19 (2013).
