House Bill 21: Child Welfare Revisions
Representative Wayne Harper.
This bill clarifies the definition of child abuse, specifically eliminating certain things, such as reasonable discipline and physical restraint of a child, from that definition. This bill also contains part of the language mandated by the federal CAPTA legislation, requiring social workers to be trained in the constitutional rights of parents.
