      On December 15 Pennsylvania Governor Corbett signed SB 361 into law-it is
      Act 110 of the Laws of 2011. The chaptered bill is not yet posted to the PA
      Legislative website, however, the version that went to the Governor and he
      approved may be found at:

      The law becomes effective 60 days after the governor's signature. Birth
      records will be available 105 years from the date of birth and 50 years from
      the date of death. We can only presume that the state agencies will work
      expeditiously in getting the records from the Department of Health to the
      State Archives. Pennsylvania had one of the most restrictive laws for
      accessing birth and death records. This legislation took several attempts
      to get passed and the coalition in Pennsylvania, People for Better
      Pennsylvania Historical Records Access (PaHR-Access) have worked diligently
      for a number of years to achieve this
