The Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth bill has stalled in the Assembly. It is in the Ways & Means Committee to which it was reported on June 12, 2007 and then again on January 29, 2008. There are no signs that it is going anywhere.
We need your help in asking the Chair of the committee, Assemblyman Herman Farrell, to support the bill by voting it out of his committee.
The job of the Ways & Means Committee is to determine what financial impact bills will have on the state. Twenty-two (22) other states have passed similar legislation and have determined there is no negative financial impact - - rather, this legislation has generated income through certificate fees.
The Senate has already passed this bill 58-1. Now is the time for the Assembly to show its support of the bill through their own floor vote. But that can't happen unless the bill gets out of the Ways & Means Committee.
You can help us. It will take less than one minute.
