Reasonable and Prudent Parent Standard
Notice of Proposed Rule
DAR File No.: 38743
Filed: 08/07/2014 09:48:41 AM
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
The purpose of this rule is to implement the reasonable and prudent parent standard made into law by H.B. 346 (2014 General Legislative Session).
Summary of the rule or change:
This rule is intended to create standards for normalcy for a child who is in Child and Family Services custody, including a reasonable and prudent parent standard and normalizing activities for children.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Section 62A-4a-102
- Section 62A-4a-211
- Section 62A-4a-212
- Section 62A-4a-210
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
There will be no increase in cost or savings to the state budget because these proposed changes do not increase workload that would require additional staff or other costs.
Local governments have no responsibility for normalcy for a child who is in the custody of Child and Family Services and are therefore not affected by this rule and will have no fiscal impact.
Small businesses have no responsibility for normalcy for a child who is in the custody of Child and Family Services and are therefore not affected by this rule and will have no fiscal impact.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
While individuals may be foster parents for whom this rule applies, there is no expected fiscal impact for those foster parents and other individuals in the category of "persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local government entities" because funding requests for these activities come out of already-existing budgets.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Child and Family Services determined that there will be no compliance costs for affected persons because there are no specific costs involved with the changes being made to this rule.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
This rule will have no fiscal impact on businesses.
Ann Williamson, Executive Director
