Death certificate amendments; disputes settled by clerk of circuit court. Provides that when an applicant does not submit the minimum documentation required by regulation to amend a death certificate or when the State Registrar finds reason to question the validity or sufficiency of the evidence, an aggrieved applicant may submit his evidence for the amendment to the clerk of a circuit court. Such clerk shall notify the State Registrar upon finding that the submitted evidence is valid and sufficient to amend the death certificate. Upon such notice, the State Registrar shall amend such death certificate to reflect the new information and evidence. Read the Bill »
