Ohio House makes changes to laws governing psychologists



Published: Tue, December 4, 2012 @ 12:35 p.m.

COLUMBUS — The Ohio House of Representatives today unanimously passed legislation to make changes to the licensing and renewal process for psychologists, as well as the investigation and disciplinary processes for when laws or rules governing the practice are violated.

House Bill 496, sponsored by state Reps. Bob Hackett, R-London, and Nancy Garland, D-New Albany, modifies both the application and examination requirements for licenses issued by the State Board of Psychology, including who may be exempted from licensure.

It also creates a retired-license status for those who have retired from practicing psychology or school psychology.

The bill contains new reasons that an applicant or license holder might be subject to disciplinary action and allows the Board of Psychology to limit or restrict the areas that someone can practice.

The bill now moves to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
