Representative Wilson OBJECTED for discussion.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
Vice-Chair  Gara explained  the amendment  would extend  the                                                                    
date boards  shall adopt regulations  to implement  the CDC-                                                                    
type   [Centers  for   Disease   Control]  regulations   the                                                                    
committee had  previously discussed. The CDC  had recognized                                                                    
the national opioid epidemic. The  bill asked various boards                                                                    
with prescribing  authority to adopt  regulations consistent                                                                    
with the CDC's national  recommendations. The department had                                                                    
requested  giving  boards  additional   time  to  adopt  the                                                                    
regulations; therefore,  the amendment  would move  the date                                                                    
from February  2019 to October  2019. He reasoned  15 months                                                                    
should be  ample time for  the work to  be done. He  did not                                                                    
believe  the  regulations  should  be  difficult  to  adopt,                                                                    
consequently  he  hoped the  boards  would  adopt them  more                                                                    
quickly. He explained  that when the bill  passed the boards                                                                    
could  start  working  on the  regulations,  the  department                                                                    
could  put the  information on  its website  for prescribing                                                                    
practitioners  to  print  out for  patients.  The  amendment                                                                    
would mean regulations would be adopted by October 2019.
