Consumer Reports Supports SB 41 to Protect Genetic Data Privacy

Consumer Reports submitted the attached letter in support of SB 41, because it would strengthen privacy protections for uniquely sensitive personal information collected by direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing companies. This bill will help ensure that genetic information remains confidential by requiring consent before disclosure of this information to third parties, and by limiting the ways in which companies can use this information.
