Abstract: IN THE SPRING OF 1975, THE GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA SIGNED SENATE BILL 165, WHICH REVISED THE STATE'S JUVENILE CODE BY REORGANZING THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND REHABILITATIVE SERVICES, ELIMINATING THE CATEGORY OF CINS (CHILDREN IN NEED OF SUPERVISION), AND EXPANDING THE DEFINITION OF 'DEPENDENT CHILD' TO INCLUDE THE PERSISTENT RUNAWAY, THE TRUANT, AND THE 'UNGOVERNABLE' CHILD. THE NEW LAW, WHICH BECAME EFFECTIVE ON JULY 1, 1975, ALSO REDEFINES DELINQUENCY SO THAT IT NOW INCLUDES THE UNGOVERNABLE CHILD WHO HAS A PRIOR ADJUDICATION FOR UNGOVERNABILITY. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT)
