HARRISBURG – Lancaster County Rep. Keith Greiner introduced legislation to allow licensed professionals the ability to seek advisory opinions, which would be legally non-binding, from their respective licensing boards pertaining to the interpretation of an act or regulation relating to the licensee. Greiner said the current uncertain economic environment caused by numerous COVID-19 mandates has caused a burden for small businesses that need extra advice about waived or suspended regulations or guidance issued by the boards. Currently, boards are not allowed to answer inquiries which leads to indecision and possible violations that could otherwise have been avoided. Last session, Greiner’s House Bill 325 was supported by the PA Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the PA Medical Society, and the PA Academy of Family Physicians.
