Editor's note: The provisions of this chapter, effective 1/1/96, and distributed in Register 136, constitute a completely new and comprehensive scheme of regulations for the licensing, operation, and department supervision of child care facilities, residential child care facilities, and foster homes. The changes are the result of the enactment of ch. 124, SLA 1994, which completely rewrote AS 47.35 effective January 1, 1996. These new provisions replace former 7 AAC 50.001 - 7 AAC 50.999. The history line at the end of each new section does not reflect the history of those replaced provisions before 1/1/96, nor is the section numbering for the new provisions related to the numbering before that date. Provisions that, before Register 136, appeared at 7 AAC 50.900 - 7 AAC 50.999 were relocated as of Register 136, to appear as 7 AAC 53.900 - 7 AAC 53.999.

As of Register 154 (July 2000), the provisions of 7 AAC 50 relating to child care facility licensing were relocated by the regulations attorney under AS 44.62.125 (b)(6) to 4 AAC 62 in accordance with ch. 58, SLA 1999. The regulations attorney made certain technical edits in some of the remaining sections of the chapter to reflect the transfer.
