Bill to create Multiple Sclerosis Task Force passes Assembly

    A bill that would create a Multiple Sclerosis Task Force in New Jersey has cleared the full Assembly.

    The Gloucester County Times reports the bill, sponsored by Senator Fred Madden (D-Gloucester, Camden), would create a task force that would include state health officials, representatives of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and people living with MS.

    The goal of the task force would be to develop strategies to identify and address the needs of those living with MS, according to the Gloucester County Times.

    The Governor still needs to give the legislation its final approval.
