LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL’S DIGEST

AB 2190, as introduced, Committee on Business and Professions. Acupuncture Board: executive officer.

Existing law, the Acupuncture Licensure Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of the practice of acupuncture by the Acupuncture Board, within the Department of Consumer Affairs.

The bill would extend the operation of the board and the board’s authority to appoint an executive officer exempt from civil service until January 1, 2019.
