Child protection, parental rights
CHILD PROTECTION – Adds to existing law to provide for parental rights during certain child protection investigations.

RS30886 / S1232

This legislation creates a new section in Idaho Code to provide for the notification of parents or guardians of their legal rights with respect to child protection investigations.

The proposed amendment will have de minimis fiscal impact to the general fund because the Department of Health and Welfare is already notifying parents in writing of their rights in CPS investigations.
