The South Carolina House passed a bill today (3/24) that amends "Daniel's Law."
Right now, a parent --- or someone acting as a parent --- can drop off an unwanted infant, 60 days old or younger, at a "manned" safe haven such as a hospital, police station, fire house or a house of worship, no questions asked.
This new bill would broaden that law to any infant one year old or younger.
Among the sponsors are Representatives Heather Crawford (R-Socastee), Pat Henegan (D-Bennettsville) and Richie Yow (R-Chesterfield).
Yesterday's vote was unanimous.
The bill is now in the Senate.
