Press conference calls for passage of A.9959B/S.7631B, which establishes the right of adoptees to receive a certified copy of their original birth certificate upon reaching the age of 18.
Let’s get Assembly Codes Committee members behind A9959B. It’s time to move the bill to the Assembly floor for vote.
A9959A, the bill NYARC supports, is heading for consideration in the Assembly Health Committee, likely on Tuesday, June 5.
Contact Assembly Health Committee members and request “DO PASS” on A9959B when it comes before the committee on June 5.
The DOH report shows that opposition in New York to an adult adoptee’s unrestricted right to obtain his or her own original birth certificate appears so muted today as to be virtually non-existent.
