S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 1819 2019-2020 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E January 16, 2019 ___________ 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.
