State Rep. Mark Tisdel and the Michigan House of Representatives today approved a plan to reinforce the state’s parental consent protections related to medical decisions for Michigan children.
House Bill 5880 would generally require any licensed or registered medical professional to obtain the consent of a minor’s parent, guardian, or person acting in loco parentis before providing nonemergency health care to the child.
“In Greater Rochester and throughout Michigan, parents lovingly raise their children,” said Tisdel, R-Rochester Hills. “As they help their growing kids get the health care they need, moms and dads in our community want to be informed and engaged. Our simple plan will support Michigan families by ensuring parents are involved in their kids’ medical decisions.”
The House approved the plan with bipartisan support.
“Michigan’s transparency laws fall woefully short — making it hard for Michiganders to hold their government accountable,” said Tisdel, R-Rochester Hills. “The government records of our highest-ranking elected officials aren’t disclosed at all. Meanwhile, citizens’ legitimate transparency requests get stonewalled as bureaucrats drag their feet and exploit vague laws to keep the people of Michigan in the dark.
State Rep. Mark Tisdel today invited Greater Rochester residents to his upcoming town hall meeting on Saturday, Feb. 24.
“From the Michigan Legislature to the U.S. Congress, William S. Broomfield was a titan for Oakland County,” said Tisdel, R-Rochester Hills. “Congressman Broomfield had a record of working across the aisle to strengthen our nation and its people — especially the people of our community.”
