Governor signs Kurtz-sponsored bill designed to provide additional protection for children

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Governor Rick Snyder today signed a House bill sponsored by State Representative Ken Kurtz of Coldwater which allows the state’s Office of Children’s Ombudsman to share information from investigations related to child deaths with law enforcement officials. The Kurtz measure also restores subpoena power to the ombudsman through the attorney general’s office to aid in investigations.

Snyder called it a good bill that will help law enforcement and the Children’s Ombudsman to better protect children and bring justice to those who abuse them.
