LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1003, as introduced, Smyth. Professional and vocational licenses.
Under existing law, boards within the Department of Consumer Affairs are responsible for the licensure and regulation of various professions and vocations. Existing law also provides for the licensure, registration, and regulation of clinical laboratories and various clinical laboratory personnel by the State Department of Public Health.
This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would require that all professional and vocational licenses currently issued by the Department of Consumer Affairs and its affiliate boards, and specified licenses issued by the State Department of Public Health, be issued from one central location and that the current regulatory, oversight, and enforcement authority with respect to holders of those licenses remain with those boards and the department currently performing those functions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
