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


          Bill  
          Summary:  AB 773 would revise the expiration date for licenses  
          issued by the Board of Psychology, to ensure that the initial  
          licensing period is a full two years.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  Annual revenue losses to the Board of Psychology of  
          about $80,000 per year (Psychology Fund). The Board of  
          Psychology will experience reduced fee revenues of about $100  
          per year for each of the 800 applicants for new licensure each  
          year.


          Committee  
          Amendments:  Delete the changes to the Medical Board's initial
