This bill amends section 9 of P.L.1977, c.424 (C.30:4C-58) to change the time when a child placement review board initiates the review of a child in out-of-home placement pursuant to a voluntary placement agreement or court order from 45 days following the child's initial or repeated placement, as required by current law, to 60 days following placement. The intent of the legislation is to address the concerns of the Child Placement Advisory Council and improve the oversight of children in out-of-home placement. In order to benefit children in placement, the council recommends changing the time a review is initiated from 45 to 60 days to: allow child placement review board members to make better informed decisions based on the most current information available, including psychological and substance abuse evaluations and other important documentation that often are not completed or received within the 45 day time frame; and improve judicial efficiency by reducing the backlog of cases on the Family Court's calendar.
