A survey of the 50 States and the District of Columbia found that no State currently has enacted legislation regarding testing.
Thirteen States have mandatory reporting policies for drug-exposed newborns.
Eleven of these States require reporting to social service agencies, at least 3 States routinely report to criminal justice agencies, and 10 require that reports be filed as child abuse or neglect.
Many States without mandatory reporting statutes indicate that reports are made to social service agencies at the discretion of the health care provider.
