This law goes into effect January 1, 2014 and will expire on January 1, 2017 at which time it can be renewed into law.

This law does not apply to casual babysitters, caretakers employed in medical, nursing, convalescent, aged, or child care facilities, or to individuals who perform services through specified in-home supportive service programs.
