The House assembled at 9:30 a.m.

Our thought for today is from Isaiah 40:29: "He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless."

Let us pray. Almighty Father, give these Representatives and staff the strength when they feel tires and let them do the work of the people. Bless these Representatives and staff as they work the budget this week. Give them courage of their conviction to do what is good and right for the people they serve. Protect and bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who give of their time and energy for this State. Bless and protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.

A local board of trustees of the district where a student is being allowed to attend pursuant to this proviso shall determine the charge a student must pay for any bonded indebtedness that student would normally pay if they resided in the district.

Amend the bill, as and if amended, Part IB, Section 38, DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES, page 374, after line 6, by adding an appropriately numbered paragraph to read:
/(DSS: Faith-Based Private Child Placing Agencies) From the funds appropriated to the Department of Social Services, the department shall make and promulgate such rules and regulations relating to licensing standards and other matters as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of Title 63, Chapter 11, Article 1 of the 1976 Code as applied to faith-based private Child Placing Agencies. For purposes of these regulations, any person or entity who holds legal or physical custody of a child for the purpose of placement for foster care or adoption or a private placement and, which for the purposes of these regulations, retain their own system of foster homes, is a child placing agency as defined in S.C. Code of Regulations 114-550. Such regulation must not discriminate or suggest the taking of any adverse action against a faith-based child-placing agency or an agency seeking to become a child-placing agency on the basis, wholly or partly, that a faith - based child placing agency has declined or will decline to provide any service that conflicts with, or provide any service under circumstances that conflict with, a sincerely-held religious belief or moral conviction of the faith-based child placing agency./

Amend the bill, as and if amended, Part IB, Section 38, DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES, page 374, after line 6, by adding an appropriately numbered paragraph to read:
/ (DSS: Foster Care Child Placements) With funds appropriated and authorized to the Department of Social Services for fiscal year 2018-2019, the department shall ensure that the following provisions are implemented related to child placements. The department shall promulgate any necessary rules or regulations to implement these provisions:

(A) If a child in foster care has been placed within the same foster home for at least 9 consecutive months and if the foster parents are willing to provide permanency through adoption for the child, the department must obtain an attachment assessment of the child and current foster parents before selecting a different adoptive placement or other alternative setting. The attachment assessment must be conducted by a qualified attachment expert. Qualified attachment experts may include individuals who can demonstrate training and or education in attachment theory, developmental psychology, and measures of attachment in additional to a minimum of ten completed attachment assessments.

(B) If a child's permanency plan includes reunification with a parent or caregiver, the department shall develop a transition plan for the child, with input from the Guardian ad Litem and a child-focused mental health professional. The department's proposed transition plan must include sufficient visitation with the permanent guardian to promote a successful and emotionally healthy transition for the child, facilitate a positive relationship between caregiver and child, and lessen trauma that may result from the move. If the department pursues placement with a natural parent, relative, or other adult with whom the child has never lived, as determined to be in the child's best interest, the department's proposed transition plan must be progressive and include increased overnight visitation with ongoing assessment of the plan and the child's adjustment by the Guardian ad Litem and child focused mental health professional. Modifications to the plan must be driven by the child's adjustment to the transition.

(C) In accordance with Section 63-7-1710, the department must file a Termination of Parental Rights petition if a child has been in foster care for 15 of the last 22 months unless there are extenuating circumstances as follows:

(1) When the child is over the age of 16 and the department has identified another planned permanent living arrangement.

(2) The department asserts to the court that the child may be safely returned to the parent because the parent has remedied the conditions that caused the removal, with or without supervision by the department for up to 12 months.

(3) The department's proposed treatment plan can be extended up to 18 months but only if: (a) the department presents compelling and persuasive evidence of how the parent has demonstrated due diligence in completing the plan; (b) the department can articulate for the court specific reasons to believe the parent will timely remedy the conditions which led to the removal; (c) the department affirms that the return of child to the parent would not cause unreasonable risk of harm; (d) the department has compelling reasons to assert that a Termination of Parental Rights is not in the best interests of the child; (E) the department has compelling reasons to assert the best interests of the child will be served by the extension.

(4) If the department assesses the viability of adoption and determines that adoption is not a viable option and has compelling reasons to assert that Termination of Parental Rights is not in the best interests of the child, then the department may pursue a permanent plan of custody or legal guardianship to relative or other person.

(D) In accordance with Sections 63-7-1640(G) and 1700(E), the department must file the petition for a Termination of Parental Rights within sixty day of the family court order designating the child's permanent plan or concurrent plan as Termination of Parental Rights and adoption. /

POINT OF ORDER

Rep. CROSBY raised the Point of Order that Amendment No. 105 to H. 4950, under Rule 5.3B, was not germane to the Bill.

Rep. CROSBY stated that Santee Cooper did not receive state funds and the Amendment was not germane to the Bill.

The SPEAKER overruled the Point of Order.

The SPEAKER cited the differences between the germaneness standards of Part IB Amendments and Part II Amendments to the Appropriations Bill.

The SPEAKER went further and cited the precedent of former Speaker Wilkins from March 11, 2004, and stated that Part IB Amendments and Part IB provisos may concern other types of funds, not just state funds, and be germane. He stated that nothing in House Rule 5.3B required an amendment or proviso to relate to, effect, or concern state funds, and he overruled the Point of Order.

Rep. MACE continued speaking.

Rep. LOWE spoke against the amendment.
Rep. CLARY moved to table the amendment, which was agreed to.
