Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that if, after reviewing the evidence, including evidence provided from the Department of Children and Family Services, the court determines that the minor's current or planned placement is not necessary or appropriate to facilitate achievement of the permanency goal, the court shall put in writing the factual basis supporting this determination, enter specific findings based on the evidence, enter other orders necessary to protect the health, safety, and best interests of the minor and may direct the Department to implement a recommendation by a clinician, Department, or assigned agency. Provides that if the Department places a minor in a placement under an order, the Department may remove the minor from the placement when a change in circumstances necessitates the removal of the minor to protect the minor's health, safety, and best interest. Provides that if the Department determines a removal of the minor is necessary, the Department shall notify the minor's counsel or guardian ad litem of the planned placement change in writing no later than 10 days prior to the implementation of the Department's determination unless remaining in the placement poses an imminent risk of harm to the minor, in which case the Department shall notify the minor's counsel or guardian ad litem of the placement change in writing immediately following the implementation of the Department's determination. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Reinserts the language of the introduced bill with the following changes. Provides that if, after reviewing the evidence, including evidence from the Department of Children and Family Services, the court determines that the minor's current or planned placement is not necessary or appropriate to facilitate achievement of the permanency goal, the court shall put in writing the factual basis supporting its determination and enter specific findings based on the evidence (rather than the court shall put in writing the factual basis supporting this determination, enter specific findings based on the evidence, enter other orders necessary to protect the health, safety, and best interests of the minor and may direct the Department to implement a recommendation by a clinician, Department, or assigned agency). Provides that if the court finds that the minor's current or planned placement is not necessary or appropriate, the court may enter an order directing the Department to implement a recommendation by the minor's treating clinician or a clinician contracted by the Department to evaluate the minor or a recommendation made by the Department. Provides that if the Department determines removal is necessary, the Department shall notify the parties (rather than minor's counsel or guardian ad litem) of the planned placement change in writing no later than 10 days prior to the implementation of its determination unless remaining in the placement poses an imminent risk of harm to the minor, in which case the Department shall notify the parties (rather than the minor's counsel or guardian ad litem) of the placement change in writing immediately following the implementation of its decision. Provides that the Department shall notify others of the decision to change the minor's placement as required by Department rule. Effective immediately.
