 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1.  This act shall be known and may be cited  as  the  "donor-
 conceived person protection act".
   §  2.  Legislative  findings and intent.  The legislature acknowledges
 the importance  of  parents  and  donor-conceived  persons  knowing  the
 medical,  educational and criminal felony conviction history of individ-
 uals who have donated reproductive tissue to a reproductive tissue  bank
 for  purposes  of  an  artificial  insemination or assisted reproductive
 technology procedure and disseminating this  history  information  to  a
 recipient and donor-conceived person upon request, if any.
   The  legislature further acknowledges knowing the medical, educational
 and criminal felony conviction history of a donor will  provide  recipi-
 ents with the necessary information to make informed decisions regarding
 the process of artificial insemination or assisted reproductive technol-
 ogy  procedure  and  for  donor-conceived  persons  to  obtain essential
 medical information, which may  reveal  any  genetic  or  mental  health
 disorders.
   The  legislature finds that reproductive tissue banks, including semen
 banks, oocyte donation programs and embryo banks have a duty to  collect
 and  verify  medical, educational and criminal felony conviction history
 information provided by donors on donor  self-reported  medical,  educa-
 tional  and  criminal  felony  conviction histories and during the donor
 screening processes and to keep detailed records  of  such  for  use  by
 recipients and donor-conceived persons, if any, prior to a procedure and
 in the future.
