- HB 1866 (BOBACK): Amends Title 42 (Judiciary) and Title 67 (Public Welfare) of Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes to enhance permanency planning and improve outcomes for older youth in the foster care system.

It codifies practices from various statutory and court procedural sources to update and improve the foster system, particularly for older youths. It also makes editorial and organizational changes to Title 67.
- HB 2214 (KLUNK): Adds a new section to Title 67 (Public Welfare) of Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes that renders unenforceable certain indemnification clauses in government contracts between county children and youth agencies and entities that provide children and youth services regulated under Title 55, Part V of the Pennsylvania Code.
