AN ACT ELIMINATING DUPLICATIVE AND BURDENSOME LICENSING REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTAIN NONPROFIT COMMUNITY SERVICE PROVIDERS.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

That title 4 of the general statutes be amended so that nonprofit providers of services at community facilities required to be licensed by the state be deemed to be licensed if the requirements of the relevant national accrediting organization are more stringent that those of the state.

Statement of Purpose:

To reduce costs for nonprofit providers by providing a means for them to forgo duplicative and burdensome state licensing requirements if they can demonstrate accreditation from an accepted national accrediting body that has requirements more stringent than the state's.
