Time is running out!
New York Legislative session ends on June 23rd.
The Bill has continued to STALL in the Ways & Means committee (since January 29, 2008).
It is their responsibility to review bills and determine the financial impact on the state. 23 states have now passed similar bills & have reported no negative fiscal impact. Instead, states have generated income via the certificate fees.
They know this. They need to be good stewards of their position and move this bill out of their committee.
The Senate passed the bill 58-1. They need to give the Assembly its turn.

It will take less than 30 seconds to send an email to the Ways & Means Committee members. Join us in asking the committee members to move Bill A8960 out of their committee so it can come in front of the full Assembly for a floor vote.
Pass this information to everyone you know and ask them to show their support of the Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth Bill for you.
For every family that has faced the tragedy of a stillbirth; for every family that will face this tragedy ...help us pass the CBRS Bill.
