2018 House Bill 5750: Revise surrendered newborn law details

Passed 30 to 8 in the Senate on December 18, 2018.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To revise a “safe delivery of newborns” law passed in 2000, which provides legal protections to a mother who surrenders a newborn to an emergency service provider. This and House Bill 5751 would allow a provider to install a “newborn safety device” similar in operation to a bank drive-up window or library book return slot, except it would be clean, safe, warm and designed to trigger a 911-call and a notice to staff within 30 seconds that there’s a baby inside. This is intended to let a mother surrender a baby anonymously. Also, the bill would also amend this law to apply to surrendering infants up 30 days old, instead of the current three days.
