Current Bill Summary

SB 817 - Under this act, any person who has at least 3 years of work experience in an occupation or profession in another state or the District of Columbia that does not use a license to regulate that occupation or profession may submit an application for a license in Missouri, with proof of experience and U.S. citizenship, to the relevant oversight body. Within 45 days of receiving the application, the oversight body shall make a determination of qualification. The oversight body shall require an applicant to take and pass a profession-specific examination and may require an examination specific to the laws of Missouri.

A license issued under this act shall be a one-time, non-renewable temporary license for two years. Upon expiration of that license, individuals shall be required to apply for a permanent license, consistent with the licensure and application requirements of that license as set forth in statute and rule. A license issued under this act shall not be qualified for reciprocity with another state or as part of an interstate compact. The provisions of this act shall not apply to certain specified professions.

This act is similar to a provision in HCS/SS#2/SCS/SB 88 (2023) and HB 1900 (2022).
