Current Bill Summary

SB 318 - This act shall be known as the "Expanded Workforce Access Act of 2019".

Beginning on January 1,2020, each state licensing authority shall grant a license to any applicant who has successfully completed the eighth grade, completed an apprenticeship approved by the Missouri Division of Professional Registration or the U.S. Department of Labor, and has passed an examination, if one is deemed to be necessary by the Division.

The Division shall establish a passing score for such examinations, which shall not exceed the passing score that is required for a non-apprenticeship license. If there is no examination requirement for a non-apprenticeship license, no examination shall be required for applicants who complete an apprenticeship.

The number of working hours required for an apprenticeship shall not exceed the number of educational hours otherwise required for a non-apprenticeship license.

This act is identical to a provision contained in HCS/HB 472 (2019), and is substantially similar to SCS/HB 470 (2019), SCS/HB 705 (2019), HCS/SB 164 (2019), HCS/SB 204 (2019).
