SCS/SB 642 - This act requires Hepatitis B and sexually
transmitted disease (STD) testing of crime victims and prisoners.
New Sections 191.224 and 191.660 are substantially similar to
current Sections 191.226 and 191.659, RSMo, but relate to
Hepatitis B and STD testing, instead of HIV testing. Section
191.224 allows the Department of Health and Senior Services to
pay for the cost of Hepatitis B and STD tests for crime victims
and Section 191.659, RSMo, requires hepatitis B and STD testing
of sex offenders in the custody of the Department of Corrections.
