Bill passed the Senate

Great news to report! The bill passed the Senate 58-1 today. Write to your Senator (who is my Senator?) and thank them for their support of the Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth Bill #S186a.

We still have a lot of work before the end of session in June to get the bill to the Assembly floor for a vote.

If you haven't written to your Assembly member yet, use the sample letter on the right [SAMPLE LETTER TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVES]. If you have heard from your Assembly member, let us know. Your information will help us prepare for our next visit to Albany.
