LD 472: Parental Rights
Sponsors:
Representative Eleanor Espling
Summary:

This bill is now dead.

(This bill will be amended to fix some issues—this summary relates to the bill as it will be amended.) This bill will unambiguously declare that right of parents to make decisions regarding the education, care upbringing, etc., of a child is a fundamental right which may be set aside only when the state, as to that child, has a compelling interest which cannot otherwise be served, and the state uses the narrowest means possible to achieve that compelling interest.

HSLDA's Position:
Support.
Status:

This bill is dead.
