Update Licensure Law

As of this writing, July 24, 2007 5:30pm, we have had no response from our requests to Rep. Jim Harrell's office regarding SB 1090 Amend Social Work Licensure Law.

As reported here, it was heard last Thursday, July 19th, in House Ways & Means. We truly appreciate efforts by Rep. Jim Harrell's office to get our bill heard in the committee he chairs.

What is troubling is that we have not yet been reported out of that committee. Our bill was one of two that day. Not only has the other bill been reported out but it has made it to the floor for a vote in the House.

Repeated attempts to communicate with the Representative's office has resulted in messages being left with his legislative assistant.

NASW-NC will continue to advocate for a swift resolution and calendaring of our bill for a floor vote.
