Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Study Commission - RG 572 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Study Commission - RG 572


Historical Note: The General Assembly created the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Study Commission in 1972 to study the problems relating to the syndrome and its effects on the families of its victims. It was to develop educational programs for parents, define responsibilities of coroners' offices and public health departments in record keeping, and define the role of police departments in connection with this problem. It was composed of three House members appointed by the Speaker, two House members appointed by the minority leader, three Senate members appointed by the president pro tempore, two Senate members appointed by the minority leader, and eight public members, two of whom were appointed by each of the above listed authorities. It was to report the results of its study to the General Assembly (P.A. 77-2175, pp. 1044-1045). The commission was abolished by the Legislative Commission Reorganization Act of 1984 (P.A. 83-1257, p. 1176).
