2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill would provide for the inclusion of certain information in the certified copy of a death record. The information required to be included in a death certificate would include the: name of the decedent; county or municipality in which the death occurred; date of death; sex of decedent; date of birth; and date of issuance and manner of death, provided this information is available. The bill further clarifies that the sex of the decedent is to be recorded to reflect the decedent's gender identity, as reported by the next of kin or the best qualified person available, unless the person completing the death certificate is presented with a document that memorializes the decedent's gender transition. If there is conflicting information regarding the gender of the decedent, the bill defines the specific documents which may be used to confirm the decedent's gender. If there is still discord on the determination of the decedent's gender, the bill details the legal steps to be taken to establish the decedent's gender.
