Through five subcommittees, the Foster Care Court-Improvement Implementation Committee works to carry out the recommendations included in the State plan. The Committee approved grant expenditures and proposed changes to statutes and rules. It also set priorities; fostered support and cooperation between judicial and executive agencies (& any other parties affected by implementation); and acted as judicial liaison with local, State and federal agencies.
The Committee's fourteen members were appointed by the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals to three-year terms. Two members served ex officio.
With the reorganization of the Judicial Council in January 2015, the Committee at that time was replaced by the Foster Care Court Improvement Program Subcommittee of the Juvenile Law Committee.
Replaced by Legislative Policy and Legal Research Subcommittee in June 2012.
