Short description: 
ABUSED MINOR-INFANT-DRUG TESTS                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act to require  a      
   person  who  interprets certain tests administered to a newborn infant      
   to report the results of the tests to DCFS if the tests  indicate  the      
   presence  of certain controlled substances.  Requires DCFS to make the      
   test report available to the court and parties in  actions  under  the      
   Juvenile  Court  Act in which the infant or a sibling is alleged to be      
   abused or neglected.   Amends  the  "Abused,  Neglected  or  Dependent      
   Minors"  Article  of  the  Juvenile  Court  Act  of 1987.  In Sections      
   providing  for  orders  of  protective  supervision  and   orders   of      
   protection,  requires  a  court  in  a custody hearing to require drug      
   testing of adult individuals residing in  the  household  in  which  a      
   minor  was  placed  if  the  minor was adjudicated neglected or abused      
   because of drug use by the person in whose care the minor  was  placed      
   or  because  the  minor was a newborn infant for whom test results for      
   certain controlled substances were positive. Effective immediately.

          judges in the State.
