LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1707, as introduced, Committee on Business and Professions. Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board.
Existing law, the Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists and Hearing Aid Dispensers Licensure Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and hearing aid dispensers by the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board. The act authorizes the board to appoint an executive officer. Existing law repeals these provisions on January 1, 2018, and subjects the board to review by the appropriate policy committees of the Legislature.
This bill would extend, until January 1, 2022, the operation of the provisions establishing the board and authorizing it to appoint an executive officer.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 2531 of the Business and Professions Code is amended to read:

2531.
 (a) There is in the Department of Consumer Affairs the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board in which the enforcement and administration of this chapter are vested. The Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board shall consist of nine members, three of whom shall be public members.
(b) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2018, 2022, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2018, 2022, deletes or extends that date. Notwithstanding any other law, the repeal of this section renders the board subject to review by the appropriate policy committees of the Legislature.

SEC. 2.

 Section 2531.75 of the Business and Professions Code is amended to read:

2531.75.
 (a) The board may appoint a person exempt from civil service who shall be designated as an executive officer and who shall exercise the powers and perform the duties delegated by the board and vested in him or her by this chapter.
(b) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2018 2022, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2018, 2022, deletes or extends that date.
