Pennsylvania's proposed package of 23 new child abuse laws is creating confusion.
The laws went into effect this year, but few seem to understand the scope and specifics of the overhaul, something made apparent at a recent session on the topic.
Apparently, the laws are still being tweaked.
"Still a very fluid process," is how state Rep. Doyle Heffley described the situation.
Causing additional confusion is a new requirement that adult volunteers working with children must have a background check through the Pennsylvania State Police.
