CHAIR WILSON  announced the  consideration of  HB 151.  [SCS CSHB

CHAIR WILSON opened public testimony.                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
1:32:07 PM                                                                                                                    
JANINE  REEP,  Board  Member,  Facing   Foster  Care  in  Alaska,                                                               
supported HB 151.  She said she is an attorney  who has worked in                                                               
the field  of child protection  for over 30 years.  Currently she                                                               
is  a mediator  in child  protection cases.  She knows  the child                                                               
protection  system very  well. She  knows how  it is  supposed to                                                               
work and she  knows it is not working well.  Things are worse now                                                               
than when she  began 30 years ago. She's been  around long enough                                                               
to see  youth coming back  into the system as  parents themselves                                                               
or more often, incarcerated. The system needs to be fixed.                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
She opined that  the bill might look  like it is full  of lots of                                                               
little things,  but the reality  is that each of  these sections,                                                               
if passed  into law, can  profoundly change a person's  life. For                                                               
example,  filling out  a foster  care application  is a  daunting                                                               
task. Under the  bill, OCS [Office of  Children's Services] would                                                               
be  required to  help  prospective foster  care parents  complete                                                               
application, and there is a deadline  for making a decision on an                                                               
application. She also highlighted  the provision for prudent care                                                               
allowing foster  parents to fill  out permission forms  for field                                                               
trips or participation on a sports  team. It is awkward for youth                                                               
to go a  state agency to have  a pink slip signed so  they can go                                                               
on a band  trip. It can mean  a youth misses out on  a network of                                                               
peers.                                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
She said  the crux of the  bill is caseload limits.  She has been                                                               
saying for decades that nothing  will change unless caseloads are                                                               
statutorily capped. Caseworkers cannot  make good decisions for a                                                               
family  when   overloaded  with  cases.  A   relative  search  is                                                               
difficult  to  do.  Families will  not  share  information  about                                                               
relatives  if  they  don't  trust  someone.  Many  times  healthy                                                               
relatives are estranged from the  family. Unless a caseworker has                                                               
an  ongoing relationship  with a  family,  family placements  are                                                               
difficult  to find.  She  noted that  the graph  on  slide 16  of                                                               
Representative  Gara's  presentation  reflects  the  relationship                                                               
between  changes in  caseworkers and  chances of  permanency. She                                                               
said she has  seen that again and again. Progress  cannot be made                                                               
when a social  worker is in place for five  months and then gone.                                                               
The  case lingers  and  children languish  in  the system,  often                                                               
until they're  adults. She urged  the committee to pass  the bill                                                               
because  it  is  an  opportunity  to  make  a  real  change.  She                                                               
concluded  reiterating  that  until there  are  lower  caseloads,                                                               
nothing will work.                                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
1:37:54 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR MICCICHE noted  her 30 years of experience.  He asked why                                                               
none of  these issues are  getting better.  He asked if  there is                                                               
something systemic that is not in the bill.                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
MS.  REEP said  the turnover  is  insane and  the caseloads  have                                                               
increased.  The  numbers  are   outrageous.  Social  workers  are                                                               
dissatisfied and feel  they are doing a terrible job.  It is high                                                               
responsibility and they  are not going to stay. A  cap on numbers                                                               
will attract more  qualified people. Many social  workers are not                                                               
interested in working  for OCS because of the  horror stories and                                                               
the caseloads.  If they  knew there  was a  limit and  they could                                                               
actually  make  a  difference  in  helping  families,  they'd  be                                                               
applying.                                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
MICHAEL  JEFFERY, Representing  Self,  supported HB  151. He  has                                                               
spent  40  years  in  Barrow, first  working  with  Alaska  Legal                                                               
Services and  then as  a superior  court judge  for 32  years. He                                                               
said part of the work of a  superior court judge is Child in Need                                                               
of Aid cases. He  likes many things about HB 151.  One of them is                                                               
training.  He hopes  that would  include  fetal alcohol  spectrum                                                               
disorder  issues. He  said social  workers  want to  do right  by                                                               
these families,  but if they  are swamped with cases,  they can't                                                               
do it.  He realizes that  some funding  issues go with  that, but                                                               
it's important  to have  these standards. He  loves the  parts of                                                               
the bill  about timeliness  in foster  care license  decisions. A                                                               
family is  offering itself.  If the  application is  dropped into                                                               
the void.  That denies the  availability of  that home and  it is                                                               
also  stress  for  the  family.  The  provisions  to  have  youth                                                               
participate in their  own case planning and the  ability of youth                                                               
and families to  do things without checking with  a social worker

caseworkers.                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
2:03:27 PM                                                                                                                    
CHRISTY   LAWTON,  Director,   Office  of   Children's  Services,                                                               
Department of Health and Social  Services (DHSS), testified on HB                                                               
151.  She  said   generally  in  the  larger   offices,  such  as                                                               
Anchorage, Mat-Su,  and Fairbanks, supervisors have  six to eight                                                               
employees  per   unit.  The  Child  Welfare   League  of  America                                                               
recommends five per supervisor.                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  VON IMHOF  observed that  the tribal  compact agreements                                                               
are just getting off the ground,  and asked what impact that will                                                               
have in taking the burden off employees by lowering caseloads.                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
MS. LAWTON said in the very  long run, it will help with caseload                                                               
size, but in  the short-term, there will be lessening  of some of                                                               
the caseload.  There are pieces  of case management they  will be                                                               
slowly taking  on. Initially the  focus is helping  with relative                                                               
searches  and family  contact visitation  and doing  safety walks                                                               
through homes in  communities where they do not  have staff. They                                                               
are being  strategic about what  they are taking on  and starting                                                               
to build their  infrastructure and capacity. It will  be a number                                                               
of years before they are taking over large numbers of cases.                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR WILSON asked the sponsor if he had any closing remarks.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
2:05:37 PM                                                                                                                    
REPRESENTATIVE LES GARA, Alaska  State Legislature, sponsor of HB                                                               
151, said  there has been talk  about how much this  is evidence-                                                               
based--less  turnover, fewer  placement changes,  less trauma  to                                                               
children,  higher success  rates of  children, fewer  children on                                                               
public assistance, more children  in the workforce, more children                                                               
graduating high school, going to  college. What he wants to leave                                                               
the committee with is the notion  that we are closer than ever to                                                               
fixing the system, but the first  step is to have all the members                                                               
on  the team  with a  good manager  and good  systems. Drawing  a                                                               
parallel to a baseball team, he  said you need a good manager and                                                               
nine  players on  the field.  Without that,  you'll always  lose.                                                               
"We're  closer  than ever  to  fixing  many,  many, many  of  the                                                               
problems at OCS." In terms of  cost, the transfer of adult public                                                               
assistance money  to OCS last  year made  it possible to  hire 31                                                               
additional staff.  That is within  striking distance  of reaching                                                               
caseload limits that  will work, that will  reduce turnover rates                                                               
like they did in New Jersey.                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE GARA said  he wanted to be clear  about the fiscal                                                               
note because  there are different  ways of writing  fiscal notes.                                                               
Early  fiscal notes  were  $4,  $5, and  $7  million. The  really                                                               
expensive things were  removed from the current  fiscal note, but                                                               
it does assume that the 31  new case workers remain. The cost for                                                               
that  is $1.4  million. The  fiscal  note last  year provided  75                                                               
percent  of the  funding for  those  workers. He  noted that  the                                                               
tradition in this  building often has been to fund  75 percent of                                                               
the  cost the  first  year and  100 percent  the  next year.  The                                                               
fiscal  note is  written as  a comparison  to what  is needed  in                                                               
addition to the 31  staff that were hired last year.  It is not a                                                               
comparison to  what was in  the budget  last year. The  funds for                                                               
those  31 workers  is  in  the governor's  budget  and the  House                                                               
budget. He  hopes they remain  in the Senate budget.   With that,                                                               
you are  within $1.4 million of  reach of actually making  a huge                                                               
difference  with   mentors  and   the  supervisors  to   get  the

workers talked about  to reduce the work and  reduce the turnover                                                               
and reduce  the waste  of money  that we have  in the  system for                                                               
paying  for  empty positions.  The  empty  positions I've  talked

CHAIR WILSON said he would hold  HB 151 awaiting the answers from
