Special Notice of Proposed Regulatory Change-Comments Due July 29th
The BRN is proposing an amendment to change the reporting requirements related to fines for traffic infractions not involving alcohol, dangerous drugs or a controlled substance from $300 to $1000. Current law requires that as a condition of license renewal, RNs must disclose whether they have been convicted of any violation of the law, excluding traffic infractions under $300 not involving alcohol, dangerous drugs or controlled substance. The purpose of the mandatory reporting requirement is to identify renewal applicants who have been convicted of a violation/crime that might be grounds for license discipline by the Board. Since the adoption of the regulation traffic fines have increased and this has resulted in an increase and thus resulting in applicants reporting violations such as illegal turns, texting, running a red light. The benefits of raising the fine level will decrease the burden for the license renewal applicant and the BRN.
To review the exact language of the proposed regulation visit www.rn.ca.gov/regulations/proposed. Comments on this proposed language change must be received no later than 5:00 pm on July 29, 2013. Please send you comments to Alcidia Valim.
