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.
