Sen. Judy Schwank of Berks County touted a package of bills aimed at addressing the issues that lead to poor pregnancy and birth outcomes. One of them is now poised to become law.
The measure intends to improve how the state gathers data on different health conditions and environmental factors that lead to risky pregnancies and births. Both the Senate and House passed it unanimously, and it is now headed to Gov. Josh Shapiro, who is likely to sign it.
