Buffalo, NY – Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed into law the Certificate of Still Birth Bill, a measure co-sponsored by Senator Timothy Kennedy.

The bill affords that babies who are still born are recognized as having existed, a condition not offered with the previous fetal death certificates.

The bill has been stalled for nearly a decade and will benefit thousands of families every year.
