Senate Bill 793: Redefines "Serious Physical Injury" to Include Nonphysical Coercion
Sponsors:
Sen. Martin M. Looney
Summary:

This is a bill intended to protect children from exploitation. It would redefine "serious physical injury" to include nonphysical coercion of someone. This would appear to prohibit a parent from insisting that a child obey any command with consequences attached for disobedience. If the child felt coerced to obey the parent, this would constitute "serious physical injury."

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