We appreciate hearing from Rose and welcome her perspective as someone experienced in developing a statewide newborn screening program. As stated in our article, information on legislated newborn hearing screening programs was obtained by sending questionnaires to the state health departments in every state in the United States and the District of Columbia. We requested that the questionnaires be returned to us with a copy of statutes and regulations. We used the information provided to us by the State of Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (specifically, Louisiana Revised Statutes 46:2261–2267). We were not provided with the rules and regulations, but are certainly pleased to hear that they address some of the issues that we feel are important for inclusion in screening programs.
