South Dakota Legislature Approves Critical Congenital Heart Defects Screening Bill

by Pamela M. on Tuesday, February 26, 2013

The South Dakota Legislature approved SB 168, a bill that would ensure that all newborns are screened for critical congenital heart defects.  The bill now goes to the governor's desk for signature.  Advocates in South Dakota have played a significant role in getting this bill passed.  Personal stories from advocates and bill sponsors helped to communicate why this screening is important, and how it can save lives.  Watch your email for an Action Alert asking Governor Daugaard to sign SB 168.
