SF 51 – Cytomegalovirus (CMV) public health initiative
SSB 1030 – Request for interim committee on a facility for geriatric sexual offenders



SF 51 requires Iowa Department of Public Health to develop and publish information to educate and raise awareness of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) among women who may become pregnant, expectant parents, parents of infants, attending health care providers and others. CMV is a fairly common virus that rarely causes symptoms. However, when pregnant women are infected with CMV, the infection can travel from mother to baby prior to birth, resulting in congenital CMV, or cCMV. The bill also requires screening for CMV if specific circumstances are met.
