April 20. 1999 HAnton News - 3 Legislative Notes By Delegate Mary 1). Compton As the final hour came to pass, the governor completed his bill signing at midnight, April 8, 1999. Of the number of bills passed by beth bodies, five were vetoed, while one became law without the governor's signature. A total of 309 bills were signed into law after the conclusion of this legislative session. Although only two pieces of legislation were rejected primarily due to technical reasons, the governor also vetoed three additional bills as the deadline drew near. Measures that would rewrite the "state's domestic law," give a tax break on wigs for cancer patients and legislation that would have restricted the amount of money placed in a special account for income tax refunds were all vetoed. The governor's administration plans to donate an estimated $15,000 for the wig tax exemption to the state chapter of the American Cancer Society. The bill was not vetoed because of its intent; however, as it made its way through the legislative process, it became known as"a Christmas Tree.  Many unnecessary amendments were attached to the bill which made it very unpopular. Seven extra exemptions were added to the bill, giving tax breaks to lobbyists, car rental commissions and the sale of soap at car washes. Midnight Thursday was the deadline for the governor to sign or veto any measure placed before him. If he refused to act on any piece of legislation, it automatically became law. With this in mind, a bill allowing slot machines at the state's four rhcetracks, became law without the governor's signature. The governor signed quite a few bills this past week in order to meet the deadline requirements. Of those, quite a few focus on our health care system. A bill that amends fl#e sections' of the WV Medical Practice Act and adds a new section, which places the Board of Medicine under the Sunset provisions was signed by the governor on April 7. House Bill 2082, authorizes the board to enter into reciprocity agreements with other jurisdictions, provides an exemption for eligible graduates of certain foreign medical schools from meeting additional requirements for licensure and defines the term "telemedicine." It also requires licensure for persons engaged in the practice of telemedicine and provides exceptions, as well as expands the basis for board investigations. It further eliminates certain mandatory reporting, provides additional due process protections for physicians subject to disciplinary proceedings, permits assessment of cost against complainant in certain cases and provides for remand in court cases of after-discovered evidence. It will go into effect 90 days from its original passage date. Another bill that was signed into law on April 8, empowers the Board of Physical Therapy to set licensing fees and allows physical therapy assistants to practice without the direct supervision of a physical therapist. House Bill 2802 also provides that an applicant may be issued only one temporary permit that is only valid for 30 days. It further removes outdated language in beard disciplinary procedures and goes into effect 30 days from passage. At last, a bill that establishes a special volunteer medical license and issued without payment of fees and provides civil immunity for voluntary medical services rendered to indigents by retired doctors, was signed by the governor on April 6. It will go into effect 90 days from its original passage date. The 309 bills that were signed into law by the governor and the one measure,making itaway: threugh the legislative process because the governor failed to react, will all be placed into West Virginia Code. It is important to note that after a bill becomes law, it is called an act. The "Acts of the Legislature" are published annually and reflect all the measures which become law in a given year. The acts are then inserted into the appropriate portions of the West Virginia Code, which is a series of books containing the laws of the state.
