Additions and Enhancements

A new policy topic was added to the APIS Policy Topics section:

  • Alcohol and Pregnancy: Warning Signs: Drinking During Pregnancy

Minor editorial and formatting changes were made to standardize the presentation of data, e.g., the use of elipses in Relevant Language excerpts of statutes and regulations.

Relevant Language excerpts were added for more statutes and regulations cited in the APIS Policy Topics section. The process of posting these excerpts is being completed over time as the excerpts are obtained.
