Current Bill Summary

SB 1053 - This act establishes a temporary license for dietitians. Under the act, an applicant who has not previously taken or passed an examination recognized by the State Committee of Dietitians ("Committee") and who meets the qualifications for licensure as a dietitian may obtain without examination a nonrenewable temporary license by paying a temporary license fee and submitting to the Committee an agreement-to-supervise form that is signed by a licensed dietitian who has agreed to supervise the applicant and has active dietetics practice in this state for a minimum of one year. The temporary license shall expire the date the Committee is notified by the supervising dietitian that the temporary licensee's employment has ceased or within one hundred eighty days of its issuance, whichever occurs first.

This act further provides that the supervising dietitian shall not be an immediate family member of the temporary licensee. Additionally, the act requires the supervising dietitian to submit a signed notarized form attesting that the applicant shall begin employment at a location in this state within seven days of issuance of the temporary license. If the temporary licensee's employment ceases, the supervising dietitian shall notify the Committee within three days. Finally, this act provides that a supervising dietitian shall not supervise more than one temporary licensee at a time.

This provision is identical to HB 1666 (2024), HB 845 (2023), and HB 873 (2023).
