Legislative Update

The Legislature will have one more set of committee meetings before the January session begins.

Chair Renner filed HB 707 which is a bill related to occupations and regulations which sunsets licensure across a very wide cross section of licenses including all medical doctors, rad techs, rad assts, specialty techs. Please click on link to see all that are included in the bill:

The sunset would apply to us effective July 1, 2022. This bill was filed on November 19th going into the Thanksgiving holiday; so, not much is known yet on how this will unfold. Chair Renner will be the next Speaker after Speaker designee Sprowls and this is a bill that will be considered. There would be a systematic review by the Legislature of each program to determine if the program is to expire, be modified, or provide other appropriate actions before the program would sunset.

Should be an interesting session!

Please feel free to send any questions to me.
