FORMERLY

HOUSE BILL NO. 111

AS AMENDED BY SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 79, PART VII, TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO PROFESSIONAL LICENSURE REGISTRATION.

WHEREAS, it is in the best interest of the State of Delaware to distribute professional licensing dates throughout the year; and

WHEREAS, the present system has peak periods which unnecessarily complicate the administration of Professional licensure; and

WHEREAS, the administrative efficiency of the Office of Health Related Professional Licensing in the Division of Public Health could be substantially increased by the redistribution of licensing dates.

NOW, THEREFORE:

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. Amend §7904, Chapter 79, Title 29, Delaware Code, by adding another paragraph under paragraph (d) to read as follows:

(1) That the Secretary of the Department of Health and Social Services shall establish specific dates for professional licensure registration, and shall provide for imposing such additional proportional fee as may be required by an extended period of licensure; provided, however, that the renewal of professional licensure registration shall be required at two-year intervals.

Approved March 25, 1974.
