“Runaway” Bill Voted Out of Subcommittee

Print More

The Runaway Youth Safety Act has passed out of subcommittee amid a continuing debate about the role of shelters and other facilities and how soon they must notify authorities they have given shelter to juveniles.  The Judiciary/Non-Civil Committee must pass the bill, HB 185, before it moves to the House for a full vote.  A hearing by the committee is likely later this week.
