CS HB 123 extends the sunset for the boards of Barbers and Hairdressers, Social Work Examiners, Pharmacy, Professional Counselors, Psychologists and Psychological Associate Examiners and Veterinary Examiners. Each of these boards have been recommended by Legislative Audit for extension.
Additionally, CS HB 123 allows fines and penalties collected by various occupations to be included with fee collections for the purpose of determining whether revenue collected approximately equals the total costs of regulation for an occupation or board. This change codifies current practice and is included by request of the Division of Occupational Licensing.
