#BenedettoBill #A2691

The legislature at this moment states its intention to ensure equal access to vital records and end decades of discrimination against adoption and adopted persons. The legislature finds that an adopted person should have access to his or her original birth record in the same manner as a non-adopted person. The provisions of this act establish a right under the law for adopted persons to access their birth certificates while referencing the fact of their adoption.
