Delegate Fleischauer served as House Chair of an interim subcommittee which completely overhauled state statutes relating to adoption. Our Code now makes it easier for adopting parents to obtain a final adoption decision in a shorter period of time. The Code also ensures that the Constitutional rights of birth parents, both fathers and mothers, were properly respected. Delegate Fleischauer was the lead sponsor of the House version (HB 2081); the Senate version passed in 1997 (SB 61).
