Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     26-6-9.   License or registration required for child care or placement by public or private agency--Waiver violation as misdemeanor. No person, firm, limited liability company, corporation, association, organization, municipality, or county, other than the Department of Social Services, may establish or maintain a child welfare agency or receive children for care or for placement in a family home unless licensed pursuant to § 26-6-14 or registered pursuant to § 26-6-14.2 to do so by the Department of Social Services. The department, upon request, may waive licensure for activities set out in § 26-6-14 for any facility that would otherwise be required to be licensed by the department as a child welfare agency if the requesting agency is similarly regulated by another state agency. Before the department may consider or grant a waiver of licensure for activities set out in § 26-6-14, the agency requesting waiver of licensure shall provide the department with appropriate documentation of current and valid approval by the appropriate state regulatory agency. Submission of false or fraudulent licensure information or documentation to the department or any violation of this section is a Class 2 misdemeanor.
