There was a terrific showing of attendance on Wed last week for the hearing of H5541 against the bad database bill. Thank you to everyone who took the time to show up and wrote to the committee.
Now be sure to let your representative of your district know you do not want them to support this bill. Bring it to their attention. We have access to software for THIS WEEK ONLY that lets you enter your address and send a direct msg to your rep. Do it NOW and then share this message with others too. We need to show that numbers are strong and we do not want this bill to pass.
Additional piece of info that you may not have seen in our previous notices —
HIPAA laws exempt agencies such as a health department from following HIPAA guidelines with data they have obtained. In other words, once the DOH has the data in the database they are exempt from HIPAA laws.
Act NOW to stop this database from happening in RI.
