Summary:

This bill recodifies the Maltreatment of Minors Act. It includes mandatory reporting of child being maltreated or having been maltreated in past 3 years. The police department is to let the welfare agency know (and vice versa) when a report is received. It states that an agency may conduct an assessment on a report that does not allege sexual abuse or substantial child endangerment and may conduct an assessment on a report that was initially assigned to investigation if it is determined that a complete investigation is not needed. An agency must provide a report to parents after the conclusion of an investigation.
