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 New Hampshire is:
Chapter 141-H: Definitions, Conditions of Genetic Testing, Use of Genetic Testing in Employment Situations, Use of Genetic Testing in Health Insurance, Use of Genetic Testing in Life, Disability, and Long-term Care Insurance

Resources for genetic legislation include:
