Bill Number: HB14-1068
ACLU Position: Oppose
The bill requires a person licensed under the medical practices act to report the diagnosis to the department of revenue (department) within 7 days after learning that a patient is afflicted with a loss, interruption, or lapse of consciousness or motor function. Failure to notify the department is punishable by a fine of up to $300 or by jail for up to 90 days. A licensee who notifies the department in good faith is immune from civil or criminal liability. Upon receiving the notice, the department cancels the driver's license, notifies the person of the cancellation, and advises the person that they may appeal the cancellation. If the person appeals the cancellation, the department uses existing procedures to determine whether the cancellation of or placing restrictions on the license is appropriate.
