Editor's note: The provisions of this chapter, effective 1/1/2001, and distributed in Register 156, constitute a completely new and comprehensive scheme of regulations for the licensing, operation, and supervision of child placement agencies by the Department of Health and Social Services. The changes are the result of the enactment of ch. 124, SLA 1994. which completely rewrote AS 47.35 effective January 1, 1996 and ch. 99, SLA 1998, effective September 14, 1998. These new provisions replace former 7 AAC 51.010 - 7 AAC 51.900. The history line at the end of each new section does not reflect the history of those replaced provisions before 1/1/2001, nor is the section numbering for the new provisions related to the numbering before that date.
