HB 1707: expanding the family-centered early supports and services (FCESS) program to children under the age of 3 who are born substance-exposed
  • Clarifies current law that any child born substance exposed shall be referred for early supports and services.    Recent reports indicate that there is a great deal of discretion in current law and many children are not referred that could benefit from early intervention.   This bill seeks to close that gap.
  • Prime sponsor: Rep. Joelle Martin
  • Position: Support
