Illinois House Bill 4350, also known as the Child Abuse Notice Act, introduced by state Rep. Jed Davis, R-Yorkville, passed the House of Representatives on April 15 and the bill will now be sent to the Senate for a vote.

“The passage of the Child Abuse Notice Act is a huge step forward to save Illinois children affected by abuse and human trafficking,” Davis said in a news release announcing the bill. “Many children in these situations are kept away from places where adults can recognize the signs of abuse. This bill would target victims at locations identified by the Illinois State Police, such as truck stops, train stations, and tattoo parlors.”

House Bill 4350 would require institutions most likely to house children experiencing abuse or human trafficking to post informational signs for children in these situations, the news release said. The signs will include information on how to identify abuse and ways for children to get immediate help, the release said.

“This bill is about one thing: protecting children from abuse and human trafficking. Even one child experiencing abuse is too many, and I am hopeful that these signs will provide a way out for these victims. Thanks again to my constituent, Colleen Murphy, for his help and cooperation on this bill,” Davis said in the release.

This bill is one of five bills included in the Protecting Kids legislative package introduced by Davis.
