Current Bill Summary

SB 421 - Currently, all data providers in the death registration process shall be required to use the electronic death registration system, with exceptions. This act repeals provisions of current law permitting a funeral director to enter data into the electronic death registration system and presenting the signed cause of death certificate to the local registrar if the person or entity certifying the cause of death is not part of the electronic system, as well as repeals provisions permitting the state registrar to adopt pilot programs until the electronic death registration system is certified.

Currently, a certified copy of a death record by a local registrar can only be issued within 24 hours of receipt of the record by the local registrar, including computer generated certifications of death records. Under this act, a certified copy of a death record can only be issued after acceptance and registration with the state registrar.

This act is identical to provisions in the truly agreed to and finally passed SB 421 (2023).
