Legislature to look at Child Welfare Law

Introduced in the Ohio House of Representatives on November 17, House Bill 371, a project of the Ohio Supreme Court’s subcommittee on child welfare issues, has a broad array of sponsors and seeks to change Ohio’s current child welfare law in significant ways. HSLDA has concerns about this legislation because it discusses a new category of when the state needs to intervene in the life of a child and his family: “lack of legally required education.” Broader definitions in other areas seem to also give more latitude for state officials to intrude in the private lives of families. HSLDA will be analyzing this bill and providing you with more information as we receive it. Check for the latest information.
