Today, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a senior member of Florida's Congressional delegation, announced her support for H.R. 2083, the Protecting Students from Sexual and Violent Predators Act, and H.R. 3205, the Promoting Adoption and Legal Guardianship for Children in Foster Care Act. The Protecting Students from Sexual and Violent Predators Act would require only qualified adults be authorized as school employees and the Promoting Adoption and Legal Guardianship for Children in Foster Care Act would reauthorize and restructure the adoption incentives grant program to promote adoption. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:
"I'm proud to support two important pieces of legislation that will assist our children. They should be able to look forward to a stable home where they can live and study effectively. We must also ensure that they are directed by only qualified personnel during the school day. Our children should always have all the necessary resources needed to learn in school and grow up in a healthy and happy home."
