 Introduced  by  Sen.  RIVERA -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
   printed to be committed to the Committee on Health
 
 AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to maternal mortality
   review boards and the maternal mortality and morbidity advisory  coun-
   cil

   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds that
 maternal mortality and morbidity is a serious public health concern  and
 has  a  serious family and societal impact. New York state has among the
 highest maternal mortality rates in the country and  racial  disparities
 remain  significant. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
 has determined that a regular process for professional,  multi-discipli-
 nary,  confidential  review of all maternal deaths can help identify the
 causes of maternal mortality, and those findings can  lead  to  clinical
 and  social change that can help prevent maternal mortality. The same is
 true for severe maternal  morbidity.  Confidentiality  is  important  to
 ensure  that full information is made available in the review process to
 maximize protection of maternal health.
   Section 3 of  article  17  of  the  state  constitution  states:  "The
 protection  and  promotion of the health of the inhabitants of the state
 are matters of public concern and provision therefor shall  be  made  by
 the  state  and  by  such of its subdivisions and in such manner, and by
 such means as the legislature shall from time to  time  determine."  The
 legislature finds that the creation of a state maternal mortality review
 board,  and  recognition  and  protection of a city of New York maternal
 mortality review board, are a matter of state concern and  an  important
 exercise  of  the  legislature's  constitutional  mandate to protect the
 public health.
   § 2. The public health law is amended by adding a new section 2509  to
 read as follows:

  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
