SF2345: Newborn Genetic Screening

Description

Names a new "Congenital and Inherited Disorders Advisory Committee" to help make sure Iowans have access to quality genetic health care services and to help pick the conditions that will be included in all newborn screenings.  The Governor will pick the members of this committee, but it must include both genetic experts and parents.  By January 1, 2022, the committee is to make sure all federally-recommended conditions are included in newborn screening panels (and will make a decision to include any new conditions within 12 months of the federal government making the recommendation). The committee will report back to the Legislature at the end of every year (December 31).  Takes effect July 1, 2022.
