Governor signs ‘Hudson’s Law’ on Down syndrome into law

A bill named after a Coast boy with Down syndrome has become law after Gov. Tate Reeves signed it today.

Hudson’s Law, also known as the Down Syndrome Information Act, will require doctors to provide the most accurate and up-to-date educational information available to parents of children diagnosed with Down syndrome.

The law is named after Hudson Hartman, a 2-year-old whose family lives in Ocean Springs.

The passage of Hudson’s Law comes just a few days shy of World Down Syndrome Day, which will be observed on March 21.
