House of Representatives
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: June 28, 2023 12:53 PM
From: Representative Stephanie Borowicz
To: All House members
Subject: Parental Access to All Medical Records of Minor Children
In the near future, I will be sponsoring legislation to give parents the authority to make better informed decisions about their adolescent’s healthcare. Current law for minor consent to treat has blocked parents from information about their child’s medical, dental and mental health treatments from ages 14 to 17 years old. We are allowing our children to make decisions which may harm them in the future.
My legislation would ensure parental consent for a child’s medical, dental and mental health treatment is maintained until the child is a legal adult at 18 years of age.
Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB1725
