FLOOR ACTION:

HF 422 – Telehealth for CCUSO residents

HF 422 allows the University of Iowa to provide health services for patients at the Civil Commitment Unit for Sexual Offenders (CCUSO) via telehealth when it is deemed medically necessary. This may save CCUSO some travel expenses if they don’t have to drive residents to Iowa City for treatment.
[4/25: 49-0 (Excused: Chapman)]

 

HF 642 – Sharing of information in human trafficking cases

HF 642 allows sharing of certain confidential information by the Iowa Department of Human Services to interdisciplinary teams. Currently, they can only share the information if the team is working on a child abuse investigation. This bill will allow information sharing in human trafficking cases when the interdisciplinary team’s sole focus is children in human trafficking cases.
