Pennsylvania Child Abuse Legislation Will Bring that State into Compliance with Federal Mandate

Pennsylvania appears on the brink of bringing its state law into compliance with the federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act. It will be the last state in the nation to meet this federal mandate. The new legislation makes it possible to take away a parent’s rights who is convicted of criminal homicide or aggravated assault or of a similar offense in another jurisdiction. It will require greater accountability from the child protective services and create citizen review boards to review cases of suspected child abuse. Source.  News25, nbc25.com.
