Swanson’s New Bills

Posted by novometro on February 16, 2007

Sandre Swanson must have felt that he was falling behind his colleagues in terms of bills introduced. On Thursday, he proposed two pieces of legislation, bringing his total to three. The first would stiffen the penalties for child abduction. The second would establish the “Probation Youth Success Act, a 3-year pilot program to be conducted by the Los Angeles County Office of Education and the Alameda County Office of Education. The act would require those county offices of education, if they chose to participate, to provide comprehensive, integrated educational, vocational, and mental health services to selected wards in selected juvenile ranches, camps, and forestry camps. The bill would require participating counties to provide matching funds to any state funds received for the program.”
