New Ohio legislation
A new bill introduced this week would make it a felony to leave a child (under age 7) unattended in a vehicle. This bill is apparently in response to cases of adults leaving children in hot cars during the summer heat. Currently, these cases are treated as child endangerment, and are subject to a wide variety of punishments. I'm not sure where I see the need to change it...but I'll get back to you on this one.
