2020 Regular Session

Bill Summary

Statutory Revision Committee. In 2019, Senate Bill 19-242 was enacted to authorize a certified emergency medical service (EMS) provider to seek licensure if the provider demonstrates to the department of public health and environment that the provider has sufficient educational credentials for licensure. Numerous conforming amendments in the bill added references to licensed EMS providers where certified EMS providers were referenced in statute.

Also in 2019, Senate Bill 19-065 was enacted to establish a peer health assistance program for EMS providers. The bill amends the statute created in Senate Bill 19-065 by adding references to licensed EMS providers and licensees to align Senate Bill 19-065 with Senate Bill 19-242.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
