(This amendment provides $250,000 from the general fund each year to ensure that newborn screening tests performed on infants include screening for congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV), which has a higher incidence than any currently screened disease within the newborn screening protocol. Screening and identification can lead to improved neurologic, developmental and hearing outcomes.)
