|Action||Adopt new standards for licensed private child-placing agencies.|
|Comment Period||Ends 4/1/2011|
Please do not pass this legislation which will take the rights of a private organization and impose outside standards upon them. This will effectively take many charitable organizations out of the foster and adoption business - because this legislation will not impose new standards that they can follow. They will be unable to follow the new law in good conscience - and thus will be forced by you to give up that service. The only people this will hurt are the children - who will not have an agency to help place them. You will hurt these innocent children by making a law to appease a minority. Surely there are some organizations that will place with same sex couples. So why force it on all of them??? The law to appease a few - will hurt many.
