Council of Health Boards

Function: The health-related licensing boards may establish a Council of Health Boards consisting of representatives of the health-related licensing boards and the Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board. When reviewing legislation or legislative proposals relating to the regulation of health occupations, the council shall include the commissioner of health or a designee.
Active dates:2001 -
History: In 2001, the legislature enacted a law requiring the Council of Health Boards, upon request by the legislature, to submit information to the legislature on proposals relating to health occupation regulation. The purpose of the law is to enable the legislature to have objective information from a neutral source for use in evaluating proposals to regulate new occupations or to change the regulatory status of occupations already regulated. (From the 2006 report titled: Legislative Review of Health Occupation Program: Massage Therapy Registration / Minnesota Council of Health Boards".)

The Council of Health Boards was reviewed by the Legislative Commission on Planning and Fiscal Policy (LCPFP) in 2013 as part of their biennial duty required by Minn. Stat. 3.885 Subd. 11. The LCPFP's 2013 Recommendations called for keeping the council.
Membership: Representatives of the health-related licensing boards and the Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board
