Amended: 8/24/2018
Title: Professions and Vocations
Status: Chapter 571, Statutes of 2018
Position: Watch


This bill would make a number of substantive changes to various boards and bureaus within the Department of Consumer Affairs. The bill raises several types of licensing fees imposed by the Board of Chiropractic Examiners, the Board of Podiatric Medicine, the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians (BVNPT), and the Naturopathic Medicine Committee.

SSC Comment:

This bill was brought up to the Consultation Council by the Chancellor’s Office staff, who were concerned about potential amendments that would significantly increase the cost of colleges seeking approval from BVNPT to offer Licensed Vocational Nurses and Psychiatric Technicians programs.
