UPDATE: The bill cleared the full Senate Thursday by a voice vote. It now heads to the House.
The death of a 3-year-old girl in Nashua last November has raised questions about state oversight and what actions should be taken when cases of child abuse are reported.
Katlyn Marin, the mother of Brielle Gage, has been charged with murdering her daughter.
Court records show the girl and her four siblings were placed in foster care in April of last year after Marin and her boyfriend were charged with felony child abuse.
