Now, a bill has been proposed to seal the death certificates of minors for ten years, and it has the backing of St. Sen. Ed Meyer.

“The bill has got a lot of support because the parents have reached out to us and said… ‘The death of our children and the death certificates really should be a private family matter,'” Meyer told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau.

He said he expects both chambers of the Legislature pass the bill and send it on to Gov. Dan Malloy.
