South Dakota House Panel OKs AIDS Testing of Prostitutes
February 3, 2012
The House Health and Human Services Committee gave unanimous approval Thursday to a measure that would require persons convicted of prostitution or soliciting prostitutes to be tested for HIV. The bill would also give anyone who has had sex with a convicted sex worker access to the test results. The legislation now advances to the full House for additional debate.
