HB 339: Prohibits teens under 18 from texting or talking on a cell phone while driving.

Bringing up baby

HB 1240: Requires a hospital, physician, nurse midwife or midwife to provide the parents or adult caregiver of an infant with a resource guide that includes information in English and Spanish relating to the development, health and safety of a child from birth until age 5. The bill also requires the Health and Human Services Commission to develop performance measures to evaluate the effectiveness of the resource guide in reducing costs to the state and improving outcomes for children.


Permission to tan

HB 1310: A person younger than 16.5 years may not use a tanning facility. A person between 16.5 and 18 years may not use a tanning device unless a parent or legal guardian visits the facility and consents in writing for the person to use the device.


Wrongful imprisonment compensation

Higher penalty

HB 2385: Punishment for engaging in sexual intercourse with a person's ancestor or descendant would increase from a third-degree felony to a second-degree felony.


Child safety seats

SB 61: Requires that any child younger than 8 be secured in an approved child safety seat system when riding in a passenger vehicle, unless the child is taller than four feet, nine inches. A violation will cost up to $25 for the first offense and not more than $250 for a second offense.

The way I read it, it's now a 2nd degree felony to have with your own mom or daughter. This...doesn't affect you, does it?

plus, not only are they not out in the community earning their normal living, they are BEING PUNISHED for something they didnt even do. If it were house-arrest, then it would be different.

Getting 80k a year does not make up for all the raping and crappy food, and etc.....

I'm willing to bet the # of people who have a 100-200k a year job that get wrongfully imprisoned is pretty short.. more like... people who walk up to you at gas stations and ask for gas money then push your bike over and run when you tell them to **** off

I'm not disagreeing at all. Just thinking about that dude that was in jail for 15 years for a rape/murder he didn't commit. 1.2 million
I never knew that you got ANY compensation for that.

Thats pretty standard, they make you sign over wavers and so you cant sue them for more. You still hear of people not taking the money and suing the out of states.

so.. was just talking to the ladies in the office about the under 8 yrs or under 4'9" children in car seats law. One of the ladies is 5' and pointed out that she's only 1" away from having to be in a car seat.. a few others chimed in "yeah, I'm 5'3" so I'm only 4" away from the height requirement"

I just laughed and walked away. Out of 5 women I'm the only one that realizes that there are 12 inches in a foot. LMAO
cracked me up
