About the Event
On March 17, 2021, members of our group were asked to give testimony to the House Public Health Committee. State Rep. Jared Patterson, R-Frisco, had asked them to testify in support of the bill, which he filed after The Dallas Morning News reported that Pangburn had learned not from law enforcement but through a Facebook friend that her mother was possibly a victim.
Patterson’s bill, HB 723, would require officials to notify next of kin if a death certificate is amended. Such a circumstance is rare. Patterson said Wednesday that the law would affect 3,000 death certificates each year across the state.
