Montana State Legislature

HB 525 Study of Licensing Boards

As part of this study the Economic Affairs Committee heard from board members of one-half of the licensing boards to determine if the boards continue to serve a public purpose and meet criteria listed in HB 525. The Economic Affairs Committee also asked board members to review restraint of trade and unlicensed practice concerns related to SB 165. As part of the study, any licensee of a professional or occupational licensing board or any member of the public was invited to participate in a survey related to professional and occupational licensing. The survey ran from July 2011 to October 2014.
