Subject:RE: comparison of reporting laws and abuse definitions by state

You may want to check with the National Conference of State Legislatures. They track state legislation and may have this information available on their website or by contacting them. www.ncsl.org -----Original Message----- From: bounce-5320635-10366103@list.cornell.edu [mailto:bounce-5320635-10366103@list.cornell.edu] On Behalf Of lfontes@rcn.com Sent: Wednesday, February 17, 2010 10:51 AM To: child-maltreatment-research-L@cornell.edu Subject: comparison of reporting laws & abuse definitions by state Is there a source that compares mandated reporting laws & definitions of abuse by state?
