I had no idea this was happening, but I'm glad it's not now.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bill that would prohibit genetic discrimination against people, for instance not hiring or insuring someone predisposed to a given illness, won overwhelming approval in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday.

The measure, approved by a vote of 420 to 3, now goes to the Senate. The White House said it supports the bill, which is opposed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a leading business lobby.

Sounds familiar.
