Negotiated licensing requirements for both established business sectors such as healthcare and for-profit educational institutions, as well as emerging industries like recreational cannabis.
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 (DCA), which oversees occupational licensing for the majority of California’s licensed professionals.
Thanks to this experience, and the numerous clients we have helped to navigate California laws pertaining to their professions and scope of practice, we have unparalleled expertise in occupational licensing.
“ Whether it be as a licensed health care provider, the regulated cannabis industry, 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 providers and cannabis businesses, occupational licensing requirements should be a major focal point for any and all affected businesses. Without having a seat at the table, you are missing out on where the decisions are being made about your practice and your business.
With newly passed cannabis laws and regulations, there is a wealth of opportunity in the 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 experience working with the Department of Consumer Affairs and its boards and bureaus enables us to well position clients on the frontline of regulatory decisions impacting their professions and businesses. Coupled with our extensive experience navigating scope of practice battles in the Legislature, the annual legislative sunset review of licensing board and bureaus, and engaging in the development of regulations, all ensure that we are protecting our clients’ interests on all fronts.
Capitol Advocacy’s team of lobbyists can help you identify opportunities in new and existing licensing legislation, and ultimately expand your professional presence in the state.
