"It is essential that children be protected from the abuse of sexual predators."
- Rep. Lynn

 

"An Act relating to reports by members of the clergy and custodians of clerical records who have reasonable cause to suspect that a child has suffered harm as a result of child abuse or neglect."

It is essential that children be protected from the abuse of sexual predators. Several classes of persons, such as nurses and teachers, are currently mandated to report actual or suspected child abuse to the appropriate authorities.

HB 92 adds clergy to the list of mandated reporters of child abuse. The bill does recognize and address the unique character of "penitential communication".

In summary, HB 92 adds to the protection of child safety, and enhances the beneficial work and reputation of the faith community.
