LB891 Adopt the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Information and Support Act was introduced by Sen. Lydia Brasch on Monday, Jan. 11. This bill will help ensure that any family who receives a new diagnosis of Down syndrome in the state of Nebraska will be given up-to-date, accurate and non-biased information about Trisomy 21. DSAF Board members, its Founder and staff worked with other leaders from the Down syndrome community in Nebraska to help support this legislation. 14 other states have already passed similar laws.
A heartfelt thanks goes to Sen. Brasch and the 43 other Senators who are co-sponsors on this bill!
