Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

A minor as defined in § 26-1-1 may be treated by a licensed physician before the minor's parent's or guardian's consent is obtained if a parent or guardian is not immediately available and if, in the opinion of the treating physician, exercising competent medical judgment, the attempt to secure the consent would result in delay of treatment which would threaten the minor's life or health.
     No physician, hospital, or other person assisting in the treatment of a minor may be held liable for providing medical or surgical treatment for a minor without consent of the minor's parent or guardian, if in the opinion of the treating physician, exercising competent medical judgment, the minor's life or health would be threatened by delaying treatment.
     This section does not apply to an elective abortion or to sterilization or to any device or medication for the control of birth, nor shall it be construed to constitute a modification or repeal of any other current provision of law pertaining thereto.
