Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning the regulation of methadone treatment facilities.

The department of human services licenses addiction programs that compound, administer, or dispense a controlled substance. The bill adds a fingerprint-based criminal background check for license applicants. Applicants must also submit to the department information on programs operated in other states and any regulatory action taken by another state against the applicant. The department must facilitate posting on a public website licensee locations, hours, and contact information. The department must report in writing to the general assembly by January 1, 2019, the program name, location, license type, license status, license expiration date, and contact information of all licensees. These requirements are repealed on September 1, 2019, to coincide with the scheduled sunset of the act.
