It’s SB 1326, or the DCF Accountability Act.

It would create the Office of Quality Assurance and Improvement inside of DCF.

A chief quality officer would make sure DCF standards are high and are being met.

This bill also has a focus on improving the foster care system to adopt kids into permanent homes.

The bill was filed in December and the senate is expected to discuss it Tuesday at a committee meeting.
