State Board of Health Rulemaking April 17, 2019 10 AM

March 27, 2019

The hearing will be held at: 4300 Cherry Creek Drive South, Sabin-Cleere Conference Room, Denver CO 80246.

 CORRECTION - Substantial revisions to rule

The purpose of this rulemaking is: 

The previous public notice incorrectly reported that this rule was to be published in the Colorado Register on April 10. In fact, the rule was published in the Colorado Register on March 10. 
The intent of the proposed amendments is to update the list of reportable conditions to better allow the Department to respond to emerging issues, including new or changing communicable diseases; and align this rule with current practice, including advances in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of communicable diseases.

If you believe there will be a significant negative impact on small business, job creation or economic competitiveness, you may request that the Department of Regulatory Agencies require the rulemaking agency to prepare a cost-benefit analysis of a proposed rule or amendment. This request must be made to the Department of Regulatory Agencies by Friday, March 15th, 2019.

You may also submit comments directly to the rulemaking agency for the agency's consideration during the upcoming rulemaking hearing.

New Legislation Would Forbid License Suspension Due to Student Loan Default

March 7, 2019

Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reintroduced the Protecting JOBs Act (S. 609) on Feb. 28. Under the bill, any state that receives federal funding through the Higher Education Act would be barred from denying, suspending, or revoking an occupational license or a driver's license solely because a borrower defaulted on their federal student loans.

Although several states have rescinded laws that call for seizing or suspending licenses, barriers remain for some license holders. As of 2018, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) reports at least eight states—Alaska, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Texas—maintain laws requiring all occupational boards to revoke licenses for defaulting on any type of federal or state education loan. An additional five states—Arkansas, California, Mississippi, Minnesota, and Florida—revoke only the licenses of health care professionals for defaulting on education loans. In Arkansas and Mississippi, the laws apply only to state health care education loans and scholarship agreements.
