HB 2428 would prohibit the state from refusing to contract with a child welfare service provider on the basis that the provider declined to provide, facilitate, or refer for a child welfare service that conflicts with the provider’s “sincerely held” religious beliefs or moral convictions.

The bill would allow child adoption and foster placement agencies, the right to discriminate in, or refuse, the services they offer (such as child placement) to LGBTQ families and children.
