Improve Disclosure of Child Abuse-Related Fatalities

Reports from several states indicate that hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of abuse-related child deaths went unreported to the federal government. An Associated Press investigation revealed that 17 states decided not to provide the federal government with information regarding how many children had died from child abuse after they had been taken from their homes and reunited with their families within a few years as well as other important pieces of information. Current laws make reporting such deaths to the federal government voluntary and allow the deaths of many abused children to get swept under the rug.
