PLEASE CONTACT THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS AND URGE THEM TO PASS THIS BILL OUT OF COMMITTEE WITH A “YES” VOTE!!HB-1436 has been introduced in the Missouri Assembly and would restore the availability of original birth certificates to adult adoptees born in the state, upon request and on par with other adults born in Missouri.
