Arkansas: HIV Testing Measure Advances

February 23, 2007

The state House Public Health, Welfare and Labor Committee has endorsed a proposal that would require the Department of Corrections to test all inmates for HIV before their release. The committee endorsed the measure after its sponsor, Rep. Fred Allen (D-North Little Rock), amended it to include all released inmates, not just parolees. Allen also removed a provision that would have required HIV testing for all Department of Corrections employees. Under the measure, inmates who test positive for HIV would be counseled about their treatment options.
