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 Colorado is: Article 3: Regulation of Insurance Companies/10-3-1104.7. Genetic testing declaration-definitions-limitations on disclosure of information-liability-legislative declaration.
