House Bill 447: An Act Regarding Social Services Investigations

Author:
Representative H. Mac Gipson Jr.

Summary:
This bill would have authorized social services to fingerprint parents and children who are the subject of a child abuse or neglect investigation and to conduct a criminal history background check on them. This would be an unnecessary and unreasonable invasion of a family's privacy. It would have treated family members, including children, as criminals even before they're arrested for any violation of the law.

Status:

3/22/2007 Introduced and referred to the Committee on Government Operations

HSLDA's Position:
HSLDA opposed this legislation.

Action Requested:
None at this time.
