|- AB 2236 – Civil Penalties, effective July 1, 2015 – Enacts new civil penalties in cases where the Department determines that a violation of licensing standards resulted in the death or serious injury, or constitutes physical abuse of a child in care. The bill establishes an appeal procedure specific to these civil penalties. The bill also expands the scope of the Child Health and Safety Fund in order to assist parents in securing alternative child care when a Child Care Center or Family Child Care Home license has been suspended or revoked. These civil penalty amounts are scaled in relation to the total capacity of all of the licensee’s facilities and not just the specific facility cited or limited to that facility type.|
