Newborn Screening Advisory Committee


The Newborn Screening Advisory Committee was mandated by House Bill (HB) 1795, 81st Texas Legislature (2009), relating to newborn screening and the creation of the advisory committee. HB 1795 is also known as “Greyson’s Law” in memory of Greyson Morris. In spring 2013, the passage of House Bill 740 during the 83rd Legislative Session (R) amended Texas Health & Safety Code §33.017 and established the minimum number of committee members.

The Newborn Screening Advisory Committee advises the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) on strategic planning, policy, rules and services related to newborn screening and additional newborn screening tests. The DSHS commissioner appoints members of the committee.
