Bill Description: Senate Bill 1029 would prevent government or any agent of government from starting an investigation based solely on on a child's vaccination status and clarify that a child's vaccination status cannot be used as a pretext for terminating a parent's relationship with their child. 

Rating: +2

Does it violate the spirit or the letter of either the U.S. Constitution or the Idaho Constitution? Examples include restrictions on speech, public assembly, the press, privacy, private property, or firearms. Conversely, does it restore or uphold the protections guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution or the Idaho Constitution?

Senate Bill 1029 would create Section 16-1618A, Idaho Code, which says, "No investigation may be conducted pursuant to this chapter if it is based upon a child's immunization status." The chapter referenced is the "Child Protective Act."

Senate Bill 1029 would also amend Section 16-2005, Idaho Code, which lays out the conditions under which a parent-child relationship may be terminated, with the addition of a subsection stating, "The court shall not grant an order terminating the relationship based upon the child's immunization status."

Senate Bill 1029 would help to protect parental rights in Idaho, particularly the right of parents to make medical decisions for their children, including the decision to forgo vaccines and inoculations.
