Page 112, after line 16, insert:

"A. The Department is authorized to provide electronic credentials to persons regulated by the Department or its regulatory boards. An "electronic credential" means an electronic method by which a person may display or transmit to another person information that verifies information about a person such as their certification, licensure, registration, or permit. Any statutory or regulatory requirement to display, post, or produce a credential issued by a Department regulatory board or the Department may be satisfied by the proffer of an electronic credential. The Department may use a third-party electronic credential system that is not maintained by the agency. Such electronic credential system shall include a verification system that is operated by the agency or its agent on its behalf for the purpose of verifying the authenticity and validity of electronic credentials issued by the Department. No funds are appropriated for this purpose."


(This amendment adds language authorizing the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation to provide electronic credentials to individuals and organizations it regulates.)
