Eliminate the Jobs Creation Committee - SB 114


Transfers the duties of the JCC to the Professional Licensing Agency (PLA), so instead of the JCC gathering information and making recommendations to the PLA, the PLA would undertake that responsibility. The JCC reviews all licensed professions in an effort to reduce government regulation. You may recall that the JCC held a hearing on nursing in October. Under SB 114, the JCC would issue a final report this summer, which would include any recommendations for a change in nursing regulation. On 1/26, the Committee on Commerce and Technology passed the bill. On 2/6, the Senate passed SB 114, which heads to the House.
