Vital Records recording of disposition on Fact of Death:  Discussion was held regarding any system or procedural changes to the death record maintained by the Department of Health Vital Records office in regards to the place of disposition.

Tim Bachmann presented history of the SDCL 34-26A-27 and what consequences taking out the scattering permits would have on Vital Records.  It was determined that Vital Records can modify the electronic death registry to accommodate any proposed changes.  Vital Records maintains that they are not taking position on the proposed new language, rather making it clear that there are no system enhancements or adverse procedural changes in regards to the filing of the death record.

Pokorny moved and Bachmann seconded to adjourn.  Motion carried by unanimous vote.  The meeting was adjourned at 10:10am CT.
