BILL NUMBER:S1727

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the executive law, in relation to designating February
fourteenth, to be known as "Congenital Heart Defects Awareness Day", as
a day of commemoration

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this bill is to establish a commemoration day to help
increase the awareness of congenital heart defects and support the
families of those who have suffered the loss of a child due to a
congenital heart defect.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Amends the Executive Law section 168-a(3) to establish
Congenital Heart Defects Awareness Day.

EXISTING LAW:
Such a commemoration day does not exist under current law.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Congenital Heart Information Network maintains that Congenital
Heart Defects (CHD's) are considered to be the most common birth
defects, and are a leading cause of birth-defect related deaths
worldwide. It is estimated that 1 in every 100 babies are born with
such a condition and that approximately 40,000 children each year in
the United States are affected. It is important to provide awareness,
support and education to families and to the community at large
about congenital heart defects. Utilizing methods such as
establishing a special awareness day for this serious condition can
help to increase awareness of this condition and assist families that
have suffered a loss due to CHD.
