Action Requested:
None. This bill has now passed both houses and has been signed by the governor.

HSLDA's Position:
Support. Juvenile courts have special rules to protect the privacy of children, but this has resulted in a system where the balance of power is sharply tilted in favor of child protective services. This change would allow friends to support families in juvenile courts.
