Occupational Licensing Board Oversight

nc-stampHB 142 – Increase Oversight of Occupational Licensing Boards

Primary Sponsors: Rep. Sarah Stevens (R – Surry), Rep. Jonathan Jordan (R – Ashe)

This bill proposes extensive changes to the way Occupational Licensing Boards report to the NC General Assembly and addresses behavior by unlicensed individuals.  The bill is in response to the 2015 FTC v NC Dental Board case that detailed additional state oversight necessary for licensing boards that are made up of a majority of licensees to take action against unlicensed behavior.  A study of this issue was conducted through the interim.  NCMS is working to evaluate the impact of this legislation on NC Medical Board activities.

This bill passed in the House on 2nd and 3rd readings on 03.06.17.
