Speight, Quijano, McKnight Bill to Study Effects of Racial and Ethnic Disparities on Infant Mortality Advanced Through Assembly

Legislation sponsored by Assemblywomen Shanique Speight, Annette Quijano and Angela McKnight to require the Child Fatality and Near Fatality Review Board to study racial and ethnic disparities that contribute to infant mortality was moved through the Assembly on Thursday during the chamberís voting session.

The bill (A-3653) mandates the multidisciplinary Board, which resides within the New Jersey Department of Children and Families, but operates independently, and reviews child fatalities and near fatalities to identify their causes, relationship to governmental support systems and methods of prevention, to shine a light onto the roles that race and ethnicity play in infant mortality.
