REGISTRY OF ABUSERS OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

By Bob Katzen

A bill establishing a Registry of Caretakers who have abused persons with an intellectual disability or developmental disability was unanimously approved by the Senate on July 18, 2018. The measure requires service providers to check the registry prior to hiring an individual as a caretaker and prohibits the hiring if the person’s name is in the registry. The proposal has been stuck in the House Ways and Means Committee since it was approved by the Senate.
