SB 6249 is the companion bill of HB 2440.
Summary of changes in substitute:
Host home programs are to be registered with the Secretary of State (SOS). When the host home program files articles of incorporation or registers with the SOS, the host home program is to provide a notarized statement that the program is meeting its statutory requirements. The SOS has no duty to confirm that a host home program is meeting its statutory requirements, nor does a filing imply an endorsement by the SOS. Host home programs are mandatory reporters. If a minor stays with a host home family longer than six months, the parents are to reauthorize their permission every six months.
