Rep. Stephanie Barnard speaks against bill that denies parental rights

Rep. Stephanie Barnard, R-Pasco, speaks on the House floor against a bill that denies parental notifications for runaway children seeking or receiving “protected health services” when entering a youth-related facility or host home.

Senate Bill 5599 was approved on a party-line vote of 57-39, 2 excused. The bill now heads to the Senate for a concurrence vote on the amended version of the bill.
