It is critical to understand Texas legislative history on the how, why, and when of sealed original birth certificates in the Lone Star State.
Texas State Representative Gina Calanni issued the following press release to announce the introduction of HB2725, a bill that will restoring the rights of adult adoptees.
HB2725 will restore a right that has been restricted in Texas since 1957: the right of all Texas-born adult adoptees to receive their own original birth certificates upon request. TXARC has worked with Rep. Calanni to assure a clean and unrestricted bill.
The Texas Adoptee Rights Coalition is open and transparent about its work and the people who do that work. Go ahead, ask us.
