Summary:
Child protective services. Requires records of unfounded cases to be kept for one year. Such records would be accessible only to the state and local departments of social services and would be purged in one year if there are no subsequent reports regarding the same child or alleged perpetrator. Currently records of unfounded reports must be purged within 30 days of making the unfounded determination.

This bill is a recommendation of the House Committee on Health, Welfare and Institutions' Special Subcommittee Studying the Death of Valerie Smelser and the Joint Subcommittee Studying the Child Protective Services System in the Commonwealth (HJR 502).
