Professions & Occupations
Statutory Revision Committee. In 2020, the general assembly repealed the requirement in the mental health practice act that a professional must be licensed, registered, or certified as a mental health professional in order to practice auricular acudetox. The bill makes a conforming amendment to clarify that it is not an unlawful act for a professional to perform auricular acudetox without a license, registration, or certification as a mental health professional. (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
