Davis discusses Protecting Kids legislation on Have All Voted Who Wish

In this latest episode of our Have All Voted Who Wish podcast, we hear from Illinois State Representative Jed Davis

Representative Davis talks about his first term in the Illinois General Assembly and how he is laser-focused on keeping kids safe. This session he introduced a legislative package of bills crafted to provide greater protections for children. 

Rep. Jed Davis' protecting children legislative package includes the following bills:

Creating Hurdles for Accessing Adult Content (House Bill 4247)
The Online Age Verification for Material Harmful to Minors Act would create hurdles for minors attempting to access adult content online.

Creating Roadblocks for Predatory Plea Deals (House Bill 4340)
This legislation would prevent individuals accused of child abuse, grooming, or trafficking from accepting plea deals and serving less time than warranted.

Creating The Child Abuse Notice Act (House Bill 4350)
The Child Abuse Notice Act would help abused children know where to go for help by requiring specific locations to post signs detailing what abuse is and where to seek assistance.

Creating Protections for School Transfers (House Bill 5434)
This legislation keeps children on school rosters until verification is received they’re adequately and safely enrolled elsewhere, ensuring no child slips through the cracks.

Creating the Foster Faces Initiative (House Bill 4340)
This initiative would require DCFS to attach photos to the permanent record of children in care, assuring judges making decisions for foster children see the faces of affected children and helping to ensure no child gets lost in the system.
