Gov. Kevin Stitt signed on Thursday a bill concerning the disclosure of HIV status of the recently deceased.

Advocacy groups asked him to veto it for being unnecessary and discriminatory.

House Bill 4041 made it out of the senate on Monday. It codifies law to require that funeral directors, medical examiners, and anyone else handling human remains be given a warning if the deceased was HIV-positive.
