HLTH-HAZARD SUBSTANCE REGISTRY
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Health and Hazardous Substances Registry Act.
Provides that facts that tend to lead to the identity of a person
whose condition or treatment is submitted to the registry (and that
are thus confidential) include the following: name, social security
number, address, and any other data element that, by itself or in
combination with one or more other data elements, identifies fewer
than 6 persons. Provides that such facts are not admissible in
evidence or subject to discovery. Effective immediately.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Replaces provisions concerning nature and use of identifying
information. Provides that facts that tend to lead to the identity of
a person include data elements that tend to identify any person
(rather than that identify fewer than 6 persons). Provides that the
identity of any person or persons claimed to be derived from cancer
registry data is not admissible in evidence, and no court shall
require information to be produced in discovery if it determines that
the information tends to lead to the identity of any person (rather
than providing that facts that tend to lead to the identity of a
person are not admissible in evidence or subject to discovery).
