Respecting Corporate Contracts: State-by-State Risk Index

The Lethal Injection Information Center - July 2018

This State-by-State Risk Index is intended to operate as a guide for companies concerned about state secrecy laws and the implications for commercial enterprises and public health.

The Index contains individualized risk profiles for every state in the USA, and assigns a risk evaluation (‘high’, ‘medium’ or ‘low’) based on the state’s legislation, policies and practices in this area.

Companies looking to expand their business in the United States are advised to consult the risk profiles in this Index before investing. It is recommended that companies engage with state officials in medium and high risk states to request confirmation that their contractual rights and corporate interests will be respected, and that public and patient health will be protected.
