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 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.
