(WEST NEW YORK) - Noting the importance of early testing to detect and treat potentially fatal disorders in infants, Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez (D-Bergen/Hudson) is sponsoring legislation that would expand the types of disorders that newborns in the state are tested for.
"Parents should have the comfort that we are checking for any abnormalities that could hinder the healthy development of their children," said Jimenez. "Many of these diseases can lead to lifelong impairments and even death, if not detected and treated early. This bill helps babies who are born with these rare disorders a chance to have healthy lives. What parent doesn't want that for their child?"
