Bills That Fight Child Abuse And Neglect Work Their Way Through The MO Legislature

Republican State Senator Jeannie Riddle of central Missouri is pleased that a measure to address child abuse and neglect is advancing in the legislature.

A report from the Missourinet says the bill streamlines communications of children’s agencies among Missouri and other states and would assist state officials such as law enforcement and prosecutors when they pursue abusive adults who are trying to hide victims who are children.

Riddle’s bill passed the Senate earlier this month and is being considered by the House.
