10 Babies A Month

In reading HB 1795's fiscal note I found that 54% of babies in Texas are born into the Medicaid system. With the expansion of Greyson's Law, 66 of these babies a year will test positive for one of the disorders we are adding. 66 babies a year! Now nearly double that to include those not on Medicaid. That's an average of about 10 babies a month that are being disabled or even dying due to lack of newborn screening in our state.

Please email Rep. Kolkhorst and ask her to vote yes for HB 1795, Greyson's Law. The numbers speak for themselves. What happened to our family should never happen to another. Her link is below.
