Testimony on House Bill 2224

House Bill 2224

Summary: "Written testimony in support of House Bill 2224 related to potential exposure to infectious diseases during the act of committing a crime and while performing law enforcement activities. ... House Bill 2224 updates the definition of "Infectious Disease" in K.S.A. 65-6001 to include those diseases designated by the Secretary of KDHE as infectious or contagious in nature and replaces the narrower definition of infectious diseases as AIDS. HB 2224 also strikes from K.S.A. 65-6009 the definition of infectious diseases as only HIV and hepatitis B. ... Infectious disease tests are available where there appears to have been transmission of body fluids from one person to another by any person arrested and charged with a crime. Also, if the person arrested and charged with a crime stated to the law enforcement officer making the arrest that he/she has an infectious disease, the court can order the arrested person to submit to infectious disease tests. Similarly, upon conviction of a person for any crime where the facts of the case involve the likely transmission of body fluids, the court may order the convicted person to submit to infectious disease testing. HB 2224 broadens the list of diseases considered infectious and contagious for these purposes."
