SB 1245 (Death Certificate Bill) has been amended to include the provisions of HB 2188 (Funeral Director Internship Bill). It has gone through House Rules and is awaiting scheduling for Committee of the Whole and then Third Read in the House. Since it was amended in the House it will have to go back to Senate for another vote.
HB 2188 was used as a vehicle for another bill relating to ride sharing. An amendment was added to the bill which removed all language relating to funeral issues. HB 2188 no longer applies to our interests.
