Current implementation status

  • Four states (Arkansas, Florida, Texas, Virginia) have a minimum exit age from GDL of 18. That is, intermediate stage restrictions are in place until age 18, and graduation from the restrictions is not possible prior to this age, as is the case in states with 6- or 12- month requirements or exit at age 17.
  • In the District of Columbia, Indiana, and New Jersey the exit age is 21.
