Utah--Legislature Fails to Make Federally Mandated Changes


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

House Bill 266, which would have made federally mandated changes to
child abuse and neglect procedures, has been amended in the Senate.
The amendment struck the enacting clause, in essence making the bill
worthless, as it will never go into affect.

HSLDA is very disappointed in this action. House Bill 266 would have
brought Utah into compliance with federal mandates, and would have
meant thousands of dollars in federal funding. In addition, this
bill would have protected the rights of parents under investigation
for abuse or neglect. Though Utah is often on the cutting edge of
parental rights legislation, the Senate has taken this disappointing
step.


Sincerely,

Scott Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney
