Madison Committee
HB 5751 Safe Haven Device - Sponsored by Madison Green

SUPPORTING POSITION: You want TO ALLOW Newborn Safety Devices (NSDs) to be installed and used at emergency service provider locations in order to ensure the safety of newborns who are being legally abandoned by parents who are unwilling to engage in face-to-face interaction while legally abandoning their child.

OPPOSING POSITION: You OPPOSE this bill. It does not address who will be held liable happens to a baby placed in an NSD as well as requiring standards for NSD to be outlined by the Michigan department of Health after the bill passes, rather than including those standards in the bill itself. This means that no one will know what those standards are until after this bill is signed into law.
