A mother who tragically lost her son in 2008 is attempting to pass a law allowing the public greater access to DCF records.

Here is a summary:

Mother petitions to change laws after son dies by babysitter – WFSB 3 Connecticut

The proposal is excessively broad. Not only does it seek information about abusers and those who have been neglectful but also seeks information about people who have simply been reported to DCF even though the were unfounded.

Not a chance.

In addition, the proposal clashes with long standing state and federal laws, which protect confidentiality. Those laws would have to be repealed or amended in some fashion.

That’s not happening.

I know the mother is well intentioned and that she seeks positive change. The goal is to protect children – and I clearly support that.

But this will never pass.
