House Bill 5641: Allows Parents to Be Placed on Central Registry For Child Abuse/Neglect Without Receipt of Notification
Sponsors:
Representative Margaret O'Brien
Summary:

House Bill 5641 would have changed the process by which parents accused of child abuse or neglect are placed on the state's central abuse registry. The bill would have given parents 90 days to appeal a finding of abuse or neglect starting from the date of service of the notification. This changed the appeal timeline from starting when the parent receives notification to when the state sends notification. This would have allowed for the possibility of parents to never actually receive notification before being placed on the central abuse registry for 10 years.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
