Update on the Jacks-Fogle legislation

Today Mayor Fenty -- along with Peter Nickles, Clarence Carter and Roque Gerald – announced the introduction of the Jacks-Fogle Family Preservation Case Coordination Authorization Act of 2009, aimed at enhancing inter-agency information sharing in an effort to prevent tragedies, like the Banita Jacks case.   The post-press conference release is here on the dc.gov Web site.

As was previously reported here, this case management system will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the city’s service delivery system, all to the benefit of children, youth and families.

The Committee on Human Services (Wells, Ward 6, chair) reports that the committee will consider the legislation after the recess.   The Committee on Health (CM Catania, At-large, chair) and then CHS will consider the legislation, sequentially.
