   16  powers of court.—
   17         (2)
   18         (b) A parenting plan approved by the court must, at a
   19  minimum, describe in adequate detail how the parents will share
   20  and be responsible for the daily tasks associated with the
   21  upbringing of the child; include the time-sharing schedule
   22  arrangements that specify the time that the minor child will
   23  spend with each parent; designate responsibility a designation
   24  of who will be responsible for any and all forms of health care,
   25  school-related matters, including the address to be used for
   26  school-boundary determination and registration, and other
   27  activities; and describe in adequate detail the methods and
   28  technologies that the parents will use to communicate with the
   29  child. The parenting plan must also designate who will be
   30  responsible for health care decisionmaking. If the court orders
   31  shared parental responsibility, the plan must provide that
   32  either parent may consent to mental health treatment for the
   33  child. The parent who consents to such treatment shall be
   34  financially responsible for costs that exceed those covered by
   35  the health insurance provided as required under paragraph
   36  (1)(b).
   37         Section 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2016.
