Removes a provision that states the department of child services (department) is responsible for payment of any costs or expenses for housing or services provided to or for the benefit of a child placed by a juvenile court in a home or facility located outside Indiana only if the director of the department or the director's designee recommends or approves the placement. Provides that the department is responsible for these costs and expenses if a juvenile court places a child in a home or facility that is located outside Indiana and the: (1) juvenile court makes written findings based on clear and convincing evidence that the out-of- state placement is appropriate because there is not a comparable facility with adequate services located in Indiana, the location of the home or facility is within a distance not greater than 50 miles from the county of residence of the child, or the placement is recommended or approved by the director of the department or the director's designee; and (2) the placement is less expensive than similar services that can be provided in Indiana.
