The Down Syndrome Protection Act has been reintroduced in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and referred to the House Health Committee.
The latest Down syndrome bill is sponsored by House Speaker Mike Turzai (R–Allegheny County) and state Rep. Kate Klunk (R-York County). The bill has also garnered dozens of co-sponsors from all across the political spectrum.
The popular bill passed the House last session by an overwhelming, bipartisan, veto-proof majority, but stalled in the state Senate.
If you live in Pennsylvania, please call your state Representative and urge him or her to support the Down Syndrome Protection Act. Click here for contact information.
