Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 384 - This act revises certain licensing regulations for dietitians. Currently the State Committee of Dietitians may refuse licensure for specific reasons. New language clarifies that it may be denied when disciplinary action has been taken against the licensee, including when the licensee is found or has plead guilty or no contest to a criminal prosecution related to his or her profession. Incompetence, negligence, fraud, or unlawful possession of a controlled substance are also grounds for denial of license. Procedures are revised to allow probation for five years and suspension for three years. Individuals with revoked licenses must wait one year before applying for relicensure. Finally, the Committee no longer needs to notify complainants of the status of files and no longer needs to recommend certain violations for prosecution.

The provisions of this act are contained in HB 567 (TAT). This act is substantially similar to HB 1476 (2000).
