Tennessee Gov. Bredesen Signs Bill Requiring People Convicted of Promoting Sex Work to Be Tested for HIV

June 14, 2007

Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) recently signed a bill (HB 1775) that would require people convicted of promoting commercial sex work to be tested for HIV, the Associated Press reports (Associated Press, 6/12). The House in April approved the bill, which was sponsored by Rep. Ulysses Jones (D). The Tennessee Senate last month approved the companion bill (SB 764). According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, the bill is the first of its kind nationwide (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 5/14). The bill goes into effect on July 1 (HB 1775 text, 6/13).
