Re: Fw: License Law weakening-Stacking the Board

Tony Barr

Well worth 2 cents and more Bob! Five of the seven board directors are

required to be O&P licensed professional members and only two are consumers.

Distinguishing business conflicts of the five professional members is

curcial to the effectiveness of the law.

Now that we have meaningful regulation in Florida, one would not want to

encourage the board’s majority oversight position and ability to deny/

approve an applicants license to practise as authority to lessen the

qualifications of its licensees for the purpose of diluting qualification

guidelines or providing cheaper labor in the workplace, would we?

We all must support a board with no business agendas or possible intent of

lessening the impact of regulation on the industry!
