260C.431 TESTS, EXAMINATIONS.
Thereafter it shall be the duty of the commissioner of human services through the bureau of
child welfare and responsible social services agencies to arrange for such tests, examinations,
and investigations as are necessary for the proper diagnosis, classification, treatment, care, and
disposition of the child as necessity and the best interests of the child shall from time to time
require. When it appears that a child found to be in need of protection or services is sound of
mind, free from disease, and suitable for placement in a foster home for care or adoption, the
commissioner may so place the child or delegate such duties to a child-placing agency accredited
as provided by law, or authorize the child's care in the county by and under the supervision of the
responsible social services agency.
