Tennessee: Senate Passes Measure Requiring HIV Tests for Prostitution Convicts

May 9, 2007

On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed a measure that would require HIV testing for persons convicted of promoting prostitution. Its companion bill received House approval by a 92-3 vote last month. The House bill's sponsor, Rep. Ulysses Jones Jr. (D-Memphis), said he proposed the legislation after a judge in Shelby County suggested pimps should be tested for HIV just like prostitutes and their customers. Arizona and Nevada require HIV tests for those charged, rather than convicted, of pandering.
