The bill authorizes the director of the division of professions and
occupations or the applicable regulatory board in the department of
regulatory agencies (regulator) to suspend or waive statutes or rules
governing a health care profession or occupation over which a regulator
has authority during a disaster emergency declared by the governor. The

suspension or waiver of a statute or rule is limited to those in which strict
compliance would prevent, hinder, or delay necessary action in coping
with or responding to the disaster emergency and may not suspend,
waive, or modify any supervisory requirements.
The bill allows a regulator to promulgate emergency rules
commensurate with the nature of the disaster emergency and within the
limits of the declaration and the applicable practice act for a health care
profession or occupation. The emergency rules automatically expire 60
days after the termination of the declared disaster emergency.
