HB 5575, a second bill to further regulate another segment of the economy in this state.

Introduced by Rep. Fred Miller on December 13, 2007, to impose new regulations on medical waste disposal procedures, and require new medical waste treatment technology to be reviewed and approved by the state. Manufacturers or providers would have to pay $500 for each review. The bill also increases the fees and regulations on health care providers and other entities that generate medical waste, and it adds to the Public Health Code the same registration and regulation of “trauma scene waste management practitioners” that is proposed by House Bill 5574.
