The Governor initiated the Task Force to Study the Licensing and Monitoring of Community-Based Homes for Children in September 2000 (Executive Order 01.01.2000.18). The Task Force is to examine the process by which community-based homes for children are licensed and monitored by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Department of Human Resources, and the Department of Juvenile Justice.
In January 2001, the Task Force submitted a status report to the Governor.
