Sen. Portman and Schumer introduce bipartisan Bringing Missing Children Home Act
CLEVELAND – U.S. Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Charles E. Schumer (D-New York) introduced bipartisan legislation Thursday aimed at protecting missing and exploited children in the United States.
The goal of the Bringing Missing Children Home Act is to improve upon law enforcement reporting and response procedures in cases of missing children by refining and streamlining how cases of missing children are handled.
Portman says one of the key steps to making missing child reports complete is to ensure that a picture of the child is a requirement in the reporting process.
“Right now, reports are required to have dental records submitted, but not photos,” said Portman.
