Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and state first lady Sheena Greitens want to make it easier for foster children to open bank accounts. Current state law requires minors to have a parent or guardian co-sign to open an account with an exception for 16 and 17 year old homeless children who can open an account on their own. The Greitens plan to extend that exception to include foster children who may not have a guardian willing to sign. The governor and his wife say this is one step in their plan to reform the state’s foster system. The Greitens administration has waived fees for foster children wanting to obtain a birth certificate and plans to make that waver permanent with a new law.
