Senate Bill 90: Medical Neglect--Exclusion

Sponsor:
Senator David Thomas

Summary:
This bill includes new language that states, "The legislature recognizes that there is a fundamental liberty interest of parents in the care, custody, and management of their child as protected by the 14th Amendment and does not evaporate simply because they have not been model parents or have lost temporary custody of their children to the state."
