State Genetics Documents
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 Minnesota is:
Chapter 72A. Regulation of Trade Practices. 72A.139 Use of Genetic Tests.
Resources for genetic legislation include:
- State genetic contacts
- Minnesota State Legislature Online
National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Genetics Laws and Legislative Activity.
