Senate Bill 63: Retention of Child Abuse and Neglect Reports
Senators Carson, Bradley, and Fuller Clark; Representatives Weber, Guthrie, and Berrien

This bill would require a screened out report of child abuse or neglect to be kept for 7 years (rather than the 1 year currently); if another report is filed within that frame, the screened out report is to be kept 7 years after the latest report. Likewise, an unfounded report is to be kept for 10 years (rather than 3), another 10 years if additional report filed; a founded report is to be kept indefinitely (rather than 7 years); all previous reports to be kept indefinitely if a founded report occurs within the retention frame.
