New Legislation Passed for Residential Care Providers

November 23, 2021

The 87th Legislature, Regular Session, concluded on May 31, 2021.  A number of bills passed during the session that will impact child care operations regulated by Child Care Regulation (CCR).

CCR has included a chart (PDF) in this message that includes the following information for such bills:

  • A brief summary of the changes in the law;
  • Information on how to comply with the changes in the law; and
  • Information on when to comply with the new law.

Please review the chart carefully, as not all bills may impact your specific type of operation. CCR will continue to communicate with you as additional decisions are made on how to implement this recent legislation.

The chart will be posted on the Minimum Standards webpage in a few days.

We look forward to working with you as we implement these new requirements and continue to work toward our common goal of protecting the health, safety, and well-being of children in out-of-home care in Texas.
