Yesterday President Bush signed into law the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act. The new law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees or prospective employees on the basis of genetic information. It also forbids the disclosure of genetic information, and prohibits insurance companies from making eligibility determinations and premium changes on the basis of genetic information.
Also, here's our prior post from last year, when the the bill had passed the House and was awaiting action by the Senate.
We'll have more when we see the bill as signed by the President.
