Bills pending in the Ohio House and Senate would change the state's foster care system. 

Ohio officials say 12 thousand children are in foster care in the state, and some will not find a family before they age out of the system.

State child welfare officials are launching a one million dollar study to determine whether anti-psychotic drugs are being over-prescribed for kids on Medicaid, especially those in foster care.
