Rep. Urban discusses the importance of cross-reporting animal and child abuse and neglect.
Cross reporting of animal and child abuse relies on strong communication between the Department of Children and Families and the Department of Agriculture. These two departments share information after responding to a call about abuse or neglect of a child or animal. Rep. Urban says in her speech that if there is neglect of an animal, there is an 80% that there has been neglect or abuse of a child. This bill will directly help with abuse and neglect of children.
