HB 2552 would allow a parent or custodian of a child to delegate powers concerning the care and custody of the child to an attorney-in-fact for one year, with an exception for active duty service parents.

The bill would have refused the attorney-in-fact the power to consent to any of the following:

  • marriage of the child;
  • adoption of the child;
  • performance of inducement of an abortion on or for the child; or
  • termination of parental rights to the child.

“Attorney-in-fact” means a person to whom any powers regarding the care or custody of a child are transferred.

STATUS

Similar to SB 1115, which failed to pass in 2015.
