SCS/SBs 1357 & 888 - This act modifies the "Pregnancy-Associated Mortality Review Board" within the Department of Health and Senior Services. Under this act, board membership shall include at least one member from each congressional district and membership shall be demographically diverse, including by race, ethnicity, sex, age, and rural and urban populations. Board members are increased from no more than 18 members to no more than 22 members.

Additionally, the board shall, in its study and review of maternal deaths, consider the level and timing of prenatal and postnatal care, approaches taken in this state and other states to reduce or eliminate racial inequities in maternal deaths, and the adequacy of data collected by the board. Data reported by the board shall be disaggregated by race, ethnicity, language, nationality, age, zip code, and level and timing of prenatal and postnatal care.
