Introduced by Rep. Jeanne Edwards (D) on January 20, 2004, to ensure healthy and safe drivers. The bill provides that if a health care provider believes that a patient's health condition poses an imminent danger to the health or safety of the patient or to any other individual, they must report the patient to the Department of Licensing. The bill requires the creation of a medical advisory board, responsible for issuing a list of specific medical conditions that would merit a health care provider reporting a patient.
Referred to the House Transportation Committee on January 20, 2004.
Substitute offered to the House Transportation Committee on February 9, 2004, and passed in committee on February 9, 2004.
Referred to the House Rules Committee on February 10, 2004, but the bill did not pass the House by the cutoff date so it is a “dead bill” and will not be considered further.
1) HB 27`14 by Anonymous on February 13, 2004 This is a unfair and disccrimatory bill aginst a particular age group. To remain fair this bill would have to include everyone in this state! Imagine the uproar that would cause. This is a very bad idea.
2) WOW by Anonymous on February 2, 2004 So if a doctor fixes someone's broken leg, and that person then drives themselves home, the Doctor could go to jail for not reporting that person to the Dept. of Lic.?
Graet! Let's form another Medical board to oversee it. Sounds like more waste of money.
