Monday, May 5: UPDATE
Just before midnight on Monday, May 5, the Connecticut House of Representatives passed HB 5147. It is now up to the Senate to pass it by midnight on Wednesday, May 6, 2014.
To learn more about this bill and what happened to my daughter because I was not made aware of how to prevent contracting cytomegalovirus, the #1 viral cause of birth defects (causing more disabilities than Down syndrome), see: Fox CT news.
Please contact your senator to ask them to pass HB 5147.To find your senator, visit: http://www.senatedems.ct.gov/find/findlegislator.asp
