Regulation of child welfare agencies; national criminal history record checks. Establishes a national criminal history record check requirement for licensure as a child welfare agency, for approval as a family day home by a family day system, for approval as a foster or adoptive parent; for employment or to volunteer at a child welfare agency or family day home; and for all adults residing in a home in which a family day home is operated. The bill requires all family day homes that provide care for one or more children for compensation to be licensed by the Department of Social Services. Currently, only family day homes providing care for six or more children must be licensed. The bill also provides that, for the purposes of determining the number of children receiving care, the provider's own children and any children residing in the home shall be counted.
