The bill allows a homeless youth who is
14 15 years of age or older (youth) to consent to receiving shelter or shelter services from a licensed homeless youth shelter. Upon receipt of such consent, a licensed homeless youth shelter is not required to notify the youth's parent or legal guardian or seek additional parental consent for shelter or shelter services. The state department of human services shall promulgate rules for licensed homeless youth shelters to follow when a youth consents to receiving shelter or shelter services.
