California has the highest number of occupational licensees of any state in the country. Our staff has previously worked for the California Department of Consumer Affairs, which oversees occupational licensing and scope of practice issues for various professions. Thanks to this experience, and the numerous clients we have helped to navigate California laws pertaining to their industries, we have unparalleled expertise in occupational licensing.
“ Whether it be in healthcare, marijuana, for-profit education, or any other licensed area, Capitol Advocacy’s team of lobbyists can help you navigate the state’s complex bureaucracy. ”
For new and expanding industries like health-related occupations and marijuana businesses, occupational licensing requirements should be a major focal point for any and all affected businesses.
With newly passed marijuana laws and regulations, there is a wealth of opportunity in the cannabis industry. In addition, there are a number of medical and healthcare professionals who are seeking to increase their scope of practice to include procedures they are trained for in their schooling, but for which they currently lack the requisite licensing.
Our past experience tracking regulations, working with the Department of Consumer Affairs and other occupational boards, developing relationships with those that oversee licensee issues, and helping for-profit schools maintain their accreditation for higher education. Thanks to this experience, we have the insight and expertise necessary to understand our clients’ views and concerns, and to ensure that these are taken into consideration when regulating and implementing licensure requirements.
Capitol Advocacy’s team of lobbyists can help you identify opportunities in new and existing licensing legislation, and ultimately expand your business in the state.
