Senate Bill 65: Revises Laws Relating to Confidentiality of Child Abuse & Neglect Records
Sponsors:
Senator Art Wittich
Summary:

Among other things, this bill would expand the list of people who have a right to review records of a child abuse/neglect investigation besides the parent, including a grandparent, aunt, uncle, brother, sister, and mandatory reporter. This expansion seems to be an invasion of privacy of the family. Existing law permits the parent or guardian to designate other persons who may obtain the records.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

Passed both the Senate and the House. Signed by the Governor. See "Bill History" link below.
