RS30366 / S1106
This legislation amends Idaho Code to add section 16-1648 that provides for the notification of parents or
guardians of their legal rights with respect to child protection investigations. The notification requirement
is placed upon the Department of Health and Welfare (department) within 72 hours of the first contact the
department has with the parents, guardians or other persons with legal custody of the child.
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 Child Protective Services (CPS)
investigations, and the notification requirement is on a form prescribed by the department.
