House passes the genetic non-discrimination bill
The House passed the genetic non-discrimination bill (H.R. 493) last night 420-3. The bill, if enacted would regulate health plan and employer collection and handling of genetic data. The bill is pending Senate floor action and is on a very fast track toward enactment. President Bush has said that he will sign this bill if it lands on his desk.
