HB 391 Safe Place for Newborns Act of 2002; revise provisions

Voted on Wednesday March 1, 2017

Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This legislation expands the number of days a mother can surrender her child to the state to 30 rather than 7 after birth (matching sister states) and allows surrender at fire and police stations in addition to hospitals.
