Current law declares every health and human services agency must maintain a list of certain health and human services provider applicants that have had their license revoked or been denied a license. A provider applicant on the list might have their initial or renewal application denied by a licensing agency under certain conditions.
The bill authorizes health and human service agencies to expand the types of health and human service providers subject to inclusion on the list to include abortion facilities.
The legislative decision to subject abortion facilities to licensing, listing, and registration decisions is, in our view, primarily a social issue. Because we do not make recommendations on social issues we remain neutral on SB 114.
