House Bill 266: Revisions to Child Welfare
Representative Wayne A. Harper
This bill would make federally mandated changes to child abuse and neglect investigation procedures. It would require two things: 1) Social workers would be responsible to inform the parents of the allegations against them at the time of initial contact, and 2) Social workers would be specifically trained in parent's rights during investigations.
