AIMS has been supportive of all four bills, but we continue to have significant concerns about the vague language contained in AB 1113. AIMS is concerned that this bill may expose the profession to an unfavorable reinterpretion of its scope of practice.
Earlier this year, another Yee bill AB 1116 was defeated. This bill would have established a mandatory postgraduate internship for all prospective licensees. While AIMS supports the concept of a postgraduate residency, we believed that this bill was an "idea before its time." Consequently, AIMS opposed the bill.
