Illinois: Gov. Feigenholtz Files HIV Notification Repeal Bill

January 17, 2008

An Illinois law requiring that the names of HIV-positive children be reported to their school principals would be repealed under the recently filed House Bill 4314. The notification law dates from 1987, and many advocates feel it was driven more by fear than by public health concerns. Rep. Sara Feigenholtz (D-Chicago) filed the repeal measure; she has called the original law "culturally insensitive" and said she was "alarmed" when it was first brought to her attention.
