INTRODUCED

HB 1476 -- Dietitians

Sponsor:  McBride

This bill contains provisions pertaining to the Committee of
Dietitians by expanding the authority of the committee in
regards to the issuance and renewal of licenses.  The committee
may refuse to issue or renew for the following causes:  pleading
guilty in a criminal prosecution, incompetence, misconduct,
gross negligence, fraud, violation of rules and regulations
promulgated by the committee, use of misleading advertisements,
obtaining fees through fraud or deception, use or unlawful
possession of controlled substances, and alcohol abuse to the
extent it impairs the person's ability to perform the work of
his or her profession.  Members of the committee cannot be held
personally liable for acts committed during the performance of
their official duties.

The bill allows the Administrative Hearing Commission to place a
licensee on probation for a period of up to 5 years or to
suspend licenses for up to 3 years.  A licensee who has had a
license revoked may apply for relicensure one year after the
date of revocation.  Relicensure will be at the discretion of
the committee.

After July 1, 2000, any person who uses the title of licensed
dietitian without being duly licensed will be guilty of a class
A misdemeanor.
