The California State Senate this week passed SB 559, a bill that will make it illegal to use people's DNA information to discriminate against them in areas of employment, education, and housing.
The bill was introduced by Senator Alex Padilla, a democrat from Pacoima district, on Feb. 17. Then, the text of the legislation was amended in assembly on June 21 and on August 15.
