JOINT COMMITTEE COMMITTEE ON LEGAL SERVICES
Date Feb 25, 2021      
Location Old State Library



Rules of agencies in the Department of Regulatory Agencies concerning the implementation of H.B. 20-1326 - Rules were not extended


08:33:16 AM  

Thomas Morris, Senior Attorney, Office of Legislative Legal Services, testified before the Committee. Mr. Morris presented the Office's rule memorandum concerning the uncontested rule issues of the Division of Professions and Occupations, Department of Regulatory Agencies, concerning the implementation of H.B. 20-1326. Mr. Morris explained that the bill allowed for the portability of credentials awarded by other states and US territories, but the rules also allowed for portability of credentials awarded by other countries and therefore conflict with the statute.

Senator Lee summarized his understanding of the rules issues.

Representative Weissman discussed the portability of credentials earned in a foreign country. Senator Lee explained the underlying motivation for the bill passed last session.
