The Massachusetts Senate has approved a temporary moratorium on the placement of children under state care in foster homes with individuals who have a prior criminal record. The amendment was approved on a 32-5 vote as part of a 196-million-dollar supplemental budget passed by the Senate yesterday. The vote follows recent news reports that the Department of Children and Families has allowed foster parents with criminal records to take children into their homes 650 since last year. The supplemental budget was sent to the House.
