DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL

Abandoned infants. Authorizes an emergency medical services provider to take custody of an abandoned infant who is not more than 30 days of age if: (1) the infant is voluntarily left with the provider by the child's parent; and (2) the parent does not express an intent to return for the infant. Provides that voluntarily leaving a child is a defense to a prosecution for child neglect if an emergency medical services provider takes custody of the child under this new authority. Requires a juvenile court to hold a hearing on a child in need of services petition relating to the abandoned infant on the next business day after the infant is taken into custody unless the court is unavailable. Makes other provisions relating to the emergency custody of an abandoned infant. Relocates a provision defining the offense of child selling.
