STATES' RIGHTS ISSUE! BUTT OUT, CONGRESS!
When states submit plans to improve their child protective services systems in grant applications to HHS, they’d be required certify that it has a statewide child abuse and neglect program which covers the care of babies facing those threats to their health. Each infant in the program would have a personalized “plan of safe care” to ensure their safety and well-being after they’re released from the care of healthcare providers.
States would be required each year to report how many babies were the subject of a “plan of safe care” and whether a referral was made for appropriate services to assist the affected baby or a caregiver.
SEE WHERE ACCEPTING FEDERAL GRANT MONEY GETS YOU???
Some of the most fearsome words in the English language:
"Hi, I'm from the federal government and I'm here to help you."
