Senate File 39: Child Protection Amendments
Joint Judicial Interim Committee
This is a large bill, but it makes one significant change. The change brings Wyoming into line with federal law regarding the conduct of social workers. Under this provision, the social worker would be required, at the time of initial contact, to tell the subject of the child abuse or neglect investigation the specific complaint or allegation made against them.

Support. While it does not currently go as far as HSLDA would like, this bill implements an important new provision of federal law which requires Wyoming to inform parents of critical information at the beginning of a child abuse or neglect investigation.
