Gov. Katie Hobbs signs foster care-related bill with added rights | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

Fewer than 10,000 children are in the state’s guardianship for the first time in 15 years, Gov. Katie Hobbs announced at a bill signing in a Mesa church.

She compared that to the more than 19,000 children that were in the foster care system in 2019.

“This is a testament to the work we have done over the last several years to reform and improve our system,” Hobbs said Thursday.

The announcement came before her signing Senate Bill 1186, introduced by Senator Ken Bennett, R-Prescott. The bill updated language and expanded the rights for both the children and foster guardians.
