CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill
No. 181


Introduced by Senator Chang

January 28, 2019


An act to amend Section 104 of the Business and Professions Code, relating to the Department of Consumer Affairs.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 181, as introduced, Chang. Healing arts boards.
Existing law creates various regulatory boards within the Department of Consumer Affairs. Existing law authorizes health-related boards to adopt regulations requiring licensees to display their licenses in the locality in which they are treating patients and to make specified disclosures to patients.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to that license display and disclosure provision.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 104 of the Business and Professions Code is amended to read:

104.
 All boards or other regulatory entities within the department’s jurisdiction that the department determines to be health-related may adopt regulations to require licensees to display their licenses or registrations in the locality in which they are treating patients, and to inform patients as to the identity of the regulatory agency they the patients may contact if they have any questions or complaints regarding the licensee. In complying with this requirement, those boards may take into consideration the particular settings in which licensees practice, or other circumstances which that may make the displaying or providing of information to the consumer extremely difficult for the licensee in their particular type of practice.
