Short description: 
OCC THERAPY-TEMPORARY PRACTICE                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Occupational Therapy Practice Act.  Increases      
   to one year (from 6 months)  the  length  of  authorized  occupational      
   therapy  practice  by  a license applicant who has not yet passed (nor      
   failed) the examination required for, but is otherwise qualified  for,      
   licensure.  Effective immediately.                                          
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB655 fails to create a State mandate        
          under the State Mandates Act.                                        
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Replaces the change proposed  by  the  bill  as  introduced  with      
   provisions requiring the Department, under specified circumstances, to      
   extend  the 6 month period for the practice of occupational therapy by      
   a license applicant who has neither passed nor failed the  examination      
   required for licensure.                                                     
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Dept. of Professional Reg.)                     
          HB 655 has no measurable fiscal impact.
