North Dakota Measure Mandates Reporting Abuse, Neglect of Seniors, Vulnerable Adults


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

North Dakota's House has endorsed legislation that would require the reporting of abuse or neglect of senior citizens and other vulnerable adults.
Representatives voted 86-4 in favor of the bill on Friday. North Dakota's Senate approved the measure earlier.
Backers of the measure say North Dakota and Colorado are the only two states that don't require the reporting of abuse to elders or other vulnerable adults. They say the measure is intended to protect seniors from physical, mental, sexual and financial abuse.
Failure to report the abuse would be an infraction under state law, for which a maximum fine of $500 could be imposed.
