GGenetic 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 Maryland is:
Insurance. §Title 27. Unfair Trade Practices and Other Prohibited Practices. Subtitle 9 Miscellaneous Provisions. 27-909 Use of Genetic Tests. Search: select article "Insurance" then enter section "27-909"
Resources for genetic legislation include:
- State genetic contacts
- Maryland General Assembly Online
- National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Genetics Laws and Legislative Activity.
