ACT NO. 52
Miscellaneous Provisions; "Office Bill"
This act makes substantive changes to the statutes governing professions attached to the office of professional regulation within the secretary of state's office. These changes affect eligibility and practice requirements for virtually all those professions. Among these changes are: increase in the level of regulation of marriage and family therapists from certified to licensed; requiring shop licenses for tattooists; and repeal of the provision sunsetting the naturopathic physician's practice act. In addition, this act amends the administrative procedures act to provide that an agency may not define unprofessional conduct by rule unless specifically authorized by law.
Effective Date: Varied, but most take effect on July 1, 1999.
