Legislation

Genetic legislation may be clearly expressed in public health statutes. It may also be embedded in other regulations, administrative rules, or other less obvious statutes, e.g. labor law. Identifying and interpreting state genetics legislation is not necessarily straightforward. One example of genetic-related legislation in Arizona is: Title 20: Insurance – Chapter 1/Article 6 Unfair Practices and Frauds/ 20-448.02Genetic Testing; Informed Consent; Definitions
