Children and Youth Regulations Published
June 5, 2001

The Department of Public Welfare proposes to amend Chapter 3490 (Child Protective Services.) These changes are necessary due to the need to be consistent with the language of the Juvenile Act, amended in 1998 to comply with the provisions of the Federal Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997. That Act focuses on safety, permanency, and timeliness as paramount for all children.

Comments on the regulations may be submitted to:

Department of Public Welfare
ATTN: Cathy Utz
PO Box 2675
Harrisburg, PA 17105-2675

FAXed to 717-705-0364 by July 2.

The regulations are published in the June 2 Pennsylvania Bulletin, available online. for more information contact Lynn Keltz or Lisa Lowrie at PCPA.
