OLR Bill Analysis

HB 6096

AN ACT CONCERNING OCCUPATIONAL LICENSING.

SUMMARY:

This bill requires the Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) commissioner to adopt regulations on uniform standards for licensing people required to obtain a professional or occupational license issued under Title 20 of the General Statutes. By law, DCP can only amend its own regulations, but because Title 20 includes licenses regulated by other agencies (e.g., Department of Public Health), DCP cannot adopt regulations for these licenses.
