BILL NUMBER:S6302 REVISED 6/23/14

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
including chemistry, hematology, microbiology and blood banking
(immunohematology) as areas covered by a restricted clinical
laboratory license

PURPOSE: This bill would include chemistry, hematology, microbiology
and blood banking (immunohematology) as areas covered by a restricted
clinical laboratory license.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - Amends paragraph (a) of subdivision 2 of section 8610 of
the education law, as added by Chapter 204 of the laws of 2008.

Section 2 - Effective date

JUSTIFICATION: There is an annual demand of approximately 640 new
laboratory professionals while only approximately 230 are graduated
annually. In addition it has been estimated that 10% of the current
workforce plans to retire within the next five years.

NYSED law does not permit graduates from other states to obtain NYS
certification or licensure without passing the NYS general exam. This
bill would enable those individuals to do so by passing a specialty
exam.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Nominal

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
