Our bills to expand screening for Congenital Cytomegalovirus (CMV) passed the last committee in the house and senate, heading for a full floor vote. If passed these bills will expand CMV screening to even more of Florida’s at-risk newborns. A HUGE thank you to Senator Tina Polsky, Representative Lauren Melo, Theresa Bulger, Terri Fisk, and all the legislators, families, audiologists, and allied health professionals for their tremendous efforts to get these bills to this point. Let’s take this across the finish line!
