Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                   STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                         RS 17408

2007 House Bill No. 100 revised the definition of “Responsible 
managing employee,” inadvertently leaving out some practitioners 
who traditionally were covered by this definition.  This has 
adversely affected some service providers.  Adding additional 
language to the existing definition corrects this problem.
