The 86th Legislature, Regular Session, concluded on May 27, 2019. A number of bills passed during the session that will impact residential child care operations regulated by Child Care Licensing.
CCL has posted a chart on the Minimum Standards webpage that includes the following information for such bills:
- A brief summary of the changes in the law;
- Information on how to comply with the changes in the law; and
- Information on when to comply with the new law.
Please review the chart carefully, as not all bills may impact your specific type of program. CCL will continue to communicate with you as additional decisions are made on how to implement this recent legislation.
We look forward to working with you as we implement these new requirements and continue to work toward our common goal of protecting the health, safety and well-being of children in out of home care in Texas.
