Critical Congenital Heart Defects Screening Bill Signed Into Law

by Pamela M. on Monday, March 11, 2013

Governor Dennis Daugaard signed SB 168 to ensure newborn babies are screened for CCHD before leaving the hospital.  The bill enjoyed strong, bi-partisan support throughout it's journey through the legislative process.  The bill will go info effect on July 1st.  The success of this initative was due in large part to the strong advocate involvement across South Dakota.  CLICK HERE for the public news service story. 

We encourage all advocates to send a note of thank to Governor Daugaard and bill sponsors for supporting this life-saving bill.  Visit our Action Center to send your message!
