SB 781 - This act provides that if the State Board of Registration for the Healing Arts receives notice from the Director of the Department of Revenue of a delinquency of state taxes or failure to file state income tax returns in the last three years by a licensee of the Board, the Board shall notify the licensee in writing within 30 days of receipt of such notice from the Director. The licensee's license shall be suspended within 90 days of such notice unless he or she requests a hearing before the Board or the Director verifies that the delinquency or failure to file has been remedied.
If a hearing is requested, such hearing shall be held within 60 days of the notice to the licensee. If no hearing is requested or the licensee fails to remedy the delinquency or failure to file, then the licensee's license shall be suspended as set forth in the act.
If a hearing is held, the licensee is allowed to present mitigating evidence regarding the delinquency or failure to file. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Board may impose any disciplinary action against the licensee's license as authorized by the practice act.
This act is identical to SB 540 (2017).
