Critical Congenital Heart Defect bill HB 2661 passes the legislature and heads to Governor for signature!

by Anne S. on Wednesday, May 29, 2013

We are very excited to announce that the Pulse Ox bill, HB 2661, has passed the legislature and is headed to the Governor's desk for his signature. 

Thanks to so many of you who went above and beyond by submitting witness slips and You’re the Cure action alerts throughout the spring, our bill to ensure that all Illinois newborns are screened for potentially life-threatening critical congenital heart defects, has now passed the House for the second (and thankfully final) time and is on its way to the Governor! 

HB 2661 will help save lives in Illinois for years to come, and wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of our terrific volunteers, partner organizations, and champions in the legislature.  Thank you once again for your help in making this important bill a reality!
