LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2193, Salas. California Board of Podiatric Medicine: Physician Assistant Board: extension.
Existing law provides for the certification and regulation of podiatrists by the California Board of Podiatric Medicine within the jurisdiction of the Medical Board of California. Under existing law, provisions establishing the California Board of Podiatric Medicine will be repealed on January 1, 2017.
This bill would extend the operation of the California Board of Podiatric Medicine until January 1, 2021, and make nonsubstantive changes.
Existing law, the Physician Assistant Practice Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of physician assistants by the Physician Assistant Board, which is within the jurisdiction of the Medical Board of California, and authorizes the Physician Assistant Board, except as specified, to employ personnel necessary to carry out the provisions of that act, including an executive officer. Existing law repeals provisions establishing the Physician Assistant Board and the authorization for the board to employ personnel as of January 1, 2017. Existing law establishes the Physician Assistant Fund and authorizes all money in the fund to be used to carry out the provisions of the Physician Assistant Practice Act.
This bill would extend the operation of the Physician Assistant Board and the board’s authority to employ personnel until January 1, 2021. The bill would instead authorize all money in the Physician Assistant Fund to be available, upon appropriation of the Legislature, to carry out the provisions of the act.
