Governor Nixon signs law to strengthen sex abuse response

(KTRS) – Missouri has a new law that aims at increasing reporting and responses to allegations of children assaulting other minors.

The policy requires the Children’s Division to report claims of sexual abuse between two kids to a local office. The Local offices must now respond to the report and are authorized to conduct an investigation if needed. Governor Jay Nixon says before this change, the local offices had limited authority to investigate.

Another piece of the legislation would require daycare and preschools to inform parents, upon request, if any children have exemptions to immunization requirements.
