            HB 457 UNLICENSED PRACTICE OF OCCUPATION                          
                                                                               
  SENATOR KELLY announced  HB 457  to be up for consideration.                
                                                                               
 MR. WELKER explained that this bill gives the Division of                     
 Occupational Licensing the authority to assess civil fines for                
 practicing an occupation without a license. Presently, only the               
 Board of Architects, Engineers, and Land Surveyors has that                   
 authority.  The only recourse for others is through the courts.               
 This would be an efficient tool for the investigative section of              
 the Division, although they don't anticipate having to use it                 
 often.                                                                        
                                                                               
 MS. REARDON said she supported the bill.                                      
                                                                               
 SENATOR TORGERSON moved to pass HB 457 from committee with                    
 individual recommendations.  There were no objections and it was so           
 ordered.
