Introduced by Rep. Jim Lilly (R) on May 23, 2018 To establish a “pre-licensure” inquiry process for individuals seeking one of the many occupational licenses that are mandated by the state as a condition of earning a living in a particular profession. This would let an individual get a preliminary determination of whether any criminal convictions or court judgments against him or her would likely result in being denied a license under licensure provisions that require an applicant have “good moral character.” This bill would affect licenses mandated under a state Occupational Code. See also House Bills 6110 to 6113, and House Bill 6381. Official Text and Analysis.
