Revoking health-related licenses

Chiropractors convicted of criminal sexual conduct will lose their licenses under a new law.

The law also prohibits the state Board of Chiropractic Examiners from granting or renewing a license for anyone convicted of criminal sexual conduct after Aug. 1, 2010. However, the board may establish criteria for someone who has been convicted to become licensed, including requiring that at least 10 years have passed since the person was released from incarceration or supervisory jurisdiction. Someone whose victim was a client or patient is ineligible.

Sponsored by Rep. Gail Kulick Jackson (DFL-Milaca) and Sen. Sharon Erickson Ropes (DFL-Winona), the law requires the Council of Health Boards to review the chiropractic provision and report to the Legislature on how a similar law would impact other health-related licensing boards. This section is effective May 16, while the chiropractic-specific sections are effective for new licenses issued on or after Aug. 1, 2010.
