Breast Tissue Bill Goes Before Senate Committee

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada Senate Health Committee is hearing AB 147 - the dense breast tissue bill today.

If approved, this bill would make it mandatory for women to be informed about what type of breast tissue they have.

Our own Wendy Damonte testified in support of the bill back in March - and is back there again tonight.

As many of you know, Wendy's mother passed away from breast cancer.

Dense breast tissue puts women at higher risk of getting breast cancer - and 40% of women have dense breast tissue.

If the bill makes it out of the health committee it will then head to the full senate for a vote.

The bill already passed Assembly last month.
