|Subject:||State Board Licensing Reform|
|We will be introducing legislation that will provide additional recourse to victims of cases that are heard before any of our state’s licensing boards.
Specifically, the legislation requires a defendant/respondent to appear in person for any scheduled hearing that is being held before a licensing board, commission or hearing examiner. In addition, the victim or anyone directly affected by the defendant/respondent’s actions or wrongdoing, would have the opportunity to provide a victim’s statement to the board.
Our proposed legislation would close a gap that currently exists in law, as it relates to consumer protection.
We encourage you to consider co-sponsoring this importation piece of legislation.
Introduced as HB2127
