Child autopsy reports might be shielded from public

A bill that would make child autopsy reports in Colorado unavailable to the public passed the state Senate with near-unanimous approval and is headed to the House on Thursday.

Proponents say Senate Bill 223, sponsored by Sen. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs, at the behest of the Colorado Coroners Association, would provide privacy to family members grieving the loss of a child.
