Staff Analysis of the Legislation

 This legislation allows law enforcement to request those arrested who have significant exposure to HIV, Hepatitis B, or hepatitis C to have a blood test in order to protect their personal health.  If the arrestee refuses a judge may order the test be administered with the cost to be borne by the officer, arrestee, or the Department of Public Health.  The determination of payment for the test shall be made by the judge issuing the order.
