Posted: 2:47 PM- A registry of all Utahns with autism would be created under HB263, passed by the House Health and Human Services Committee Wednesday.
The Utah Registry of Autism and Developmental Disabilities, or URADD, would contain medical histories and would be available to researchers.
'The [autism] research is currently underway, but there isn't enough data to make it meaningful,' said the bill's sponsor, Rep. Eric Hutchings, R-Kearns. 'That's the big hole we're dealing with.'"
