Suggested State Legislation: This draft bill combines two Michigan laws enacted in 2009. This legislation permits cities, townships, counties, school districts, or intermediate school districts in areas where the percentage of families with children living at or below the Federal poverty rate is higher than the state average to establish “Promise Zones” to provide financial assistance to postsecondary education to students who graduate from a public or nonpublic high school within that zone. The bill requires the governing bodies of such entities to apply to state department of treasury for approval to establish promise zones.

New York Chapter 435 of 2008 enhances awareness of that Registry by directing that a biological parent be given an Adoption Information Registry Birth Parent Registration Consent form at the time they surrender their child for adoption.
