Texas House Representative Bryan Hughes recently filed two CPS reform bills, including one focusing on the central registry problems (HB 4119) and another CPS reform bill (HB 4121). These bills help to level the playing field between an often subjective government system and intimidated parents in CPS investigations.
Both bills have passed their committees. According to State Representative Stuart Spitzer, "These two bills allow for the parents to have due process when dealing with CPS. They provide some balance between CPS, which can be overbearing, and the parents."
"The Child Protective Services system must always consider the safety of our children first and foremost. Without compromising that mission, we have to make sure that parents' rights are protected in the process." -Rep. Bryan Hughes
