|To:||All Senate members|
|Subject:||State Licensing Board Reforms|
|I will soon be introducing a proposal to provide additional recourse to victims whose cases would be heard before any of the state’s licensing boards. Specifically, the legislation would require a defendant or “respondent” appear in person for any hearing. Also, a victim or anyone adversely affected by the respondent’s actions or malfeasance; which prompted the case before the licensing board, commission or hearing examiner, would have the opportunity to provide a victim’s statement.
I believe this legislation would address a gap that currently exists in law as it relates to consumer protection and I would urge your support of this proposal.
Introduced as SB1226
