On February 3rd, Representative Heather Scott (R-Blanchard) introduced House Bill 403 (H0403) into the House Judiciary, Rules and Administration Committee. This bill proposes a slight word adjustment to an existing law about interviews conducted by Child Protective Services (CPS). It adds a reference to a section of Idaho law that explains the role and rights of parents. This adds thoroughness and reinforces the importance of family involvement in CPS interviews.
