There’s bill being heard by the Kansas Senate Judiciary Committee today that creates a higher tier of foster care reports the Wichita Eagle.
This level pays at a substantially higher rate and families in the program would be eligible for state education aid to either home school or send their foster kids to private school.
The bill is introduced by Sen. Forrest Knox, R-Altoona. He says he wants to provide stability for children.
To be eligible for this program, a husband and wife have to be married for at least seven years, one cannot work outside the home. They must keep their home free of liquor and tobacco, and refrain from extramarital sex.
