          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 27, 2015


          Bill  
          Summary:  AB 316 would exempt veterinarians licensed in other  
          states from state licensure requirements when offering temporary  
          veterinary services in response to a "cruelty incident" and  
          allow the operation of temporary animal shelters.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  No significant fiscal impact is anticipated to the  
          Board of Veterinary Medicine. The amendments delete the  
          requirement for authorization from the Board, which eliminates  
          the need for upgrades to the Board's licensing system.


          Author  
          Amendments:  Revise the bill by moving the exemption from  
          current licensing requirements to an existing provision of law

          granting specified exemptions. The amendments eliminate the  
          requirement for out-of-state veterinarians to receive  
          authorization from the Board of Veterinary Medicine.
