Senate Bill 5528 would provide arrest protection to patients and their designated providers. The original version asked the Liquor Control Board to issue cards, but the version that passed out of committee states that patients and providers only need to show proof of authorization. This is a big win, as any kind of patient registry would have been a violation of HIPAA.
