S.5713 Johnson/A.8289 Glick
AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to application for a waiver from licensing requirements for entities providing certain professional services
The proposed legislation seeks to extend the deadline by which not-for-profit and education corporations providing certain professional service (including licensed master social work, licensed clinical social work, licensed mental health counseling, licensed marriage and family therapy, licensed creative arts therapy, licensed psychoanalysis and licensed psychology) must apply for a waiver issued by the New York State Education Department in order to be exempt from corporate practice prohibitions. The extension would push the deadline from June 16, 2011 back to February 1, 2012.
