The House convenes at Noon today. Committee time will continue as you will see a number of committees
scheduled for today.
Today, in Business Occupation Licenses Committee, we will be presenting our legislation HB 657 (Firm mobility, CPE Reciprocity). In that same committee, we, along with other professions that we have rallied along with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) will be opposing House Bill 3395 (Professional Licensure/Criminal Convictions). There are 6 bills that have been introduced dealing with criminal convictions and professional licensure. IDFPR is working with the bill's sponsor to pool the bills and amend with agreed upon language. HB 3395 is the outlier and includes broad language that prevents IDFPR from considering criminal convictions as a denial for professional license (60 different professions).
Cold and windy here today.
