Gingery Wants To Expand CHINS

Gingery

Teton County’s State Representative Keith Gingery has filed a bill to increase the eligibility age for the Child in Need of Supervision program.  Under the proposed legislation for the session beginning next month, Gingery wants the age increased from the current 16, to 17 years old.  Gingery explains the bill comes out of a state Supreme Court case in which a young man in Natrona County had been placed in the program when he was 15, but was removed when he turned 17 even though the judge originally placing him in the program wanted the care to continue until he was 18.  Gingery explains that the program provides assistance to a child and his family without a crime having first been committed or abuse having taken place.  He says many of the children who receive assistance through CHINS get things in their lives straightened out to be able to go on to normal lives.

  • Whitetails can be creatures of habit - October 16, 2014
    Quite a few mule deer hunters are already back from their hunts. They might even have had a venison steak for supper last night. But muleys aren’t the only deer in Wyoming.
