House Bill 1454 would expand the definition of "mandatory reporter" to include anyone over 18 who witnesses, or witnesses signs of, child abuse. This means that a parent who chooses to address issues of abuse against their child by seeking private services and not getting social services involved could be penalized for failing to file a report. The bill also increases the fines and penalties associated with failing to report.
