House Bill 1347: Statewide Daytime Curfew

Author:
Representative Messer

Summary:
Originally, this bill would have made it a compulsory school attendance violation for a child under 18 years to be in a public place during school hours on a school day. However, the sponsor, Representative Messer, agreed to take the offending language out of the bill. Therefore, this bill, as amended, would no longer impose a statewide daytime curfew.
