HB1108 by Zerwas (Relating to the regulation of medical radiologic technology.), As Introduced
The bill would amend Chapter 601, Occupations Code, relating to medical radiologic technologists. The bill would make clarifying changes relating to the executive commissioner of the Health and Human Services Commission's rule-making authority. The bill would create new certifications for radiologist assistants and radiology practitioner assistants, including a three-year transitional certificate for a practitioner assistant. The bill would take effect September 1, 2011.
The Department of State Health Services indicates that both costs and revenue increases related to the new certificates would be insignificant, as the number of applicants is estimated to be less than 15 per fiscal year.
