The Children, Families, Health, and Human Services Interim Committee has approved a bill to require the state to seek national accreditation of its child protective services. The action came at the committee’s meeting in late June, as members began considering options for their Senate Joint Resolution 30 study of childhood trauma.

The committee also approved a bill to clarify insurance coverage of routine medical costs for patients who are taking part in cancer clinical trials.

The committee will review and act on several other proposals at its final meeting in August, including a bill to move residents out of the Montana Developmental Center and into community services by June 30, 2015. The facility in Boulder serves seriously developmentally disabled adults.
