Governor Bryan Acts on and Approves Bill to Create Chronic Kidney Disease Registry

U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS – Governor Albert Bryan Jr. acted on and approved Bill No. 35-0207 in its entirety, creating the Territorial Chronic Kidney Disease, Stroke and Diabetes Registry. Bill No. 35-0207 was passed by the 35th Legislature at its session on March 25, 2024.
