Senate committee to review genetic nondiscrimination

Tomorrow (January 31) at 10 am EST, the Senate committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions will "mark-up" the Senate version of the genetic nondiscrimination bill discussed today by a House committee. Word from the rumor mill is that the meeting will be open to the public. I don't know whether it will be broadcast on t.v.

You can check out the text of each of the bills by going to http://thomas.loc.gov/ and searching for H. R. 493 for the House and S. 358 for the Senate.

I wrote to my Utah Representative, Rob Bishop, about the bill in the House and he called me tonight with some questions. I hope my answers were helpful to him.
