Emergency Licenses 

OPLC is working to update current licensing systems to accommodate the provisions of Senate Bill 277, signed into law on June 3, 2022.  SB277 extends the expiration date for the Emergency licensing process and the Emergency or Temporary licensing of Health Care workers enacted in       SB155-FN (2021), converts the Temporary or Emergency licenses issued to permanent licenses, and extends the repeal dates of those provisions.  billText.aspx (state.nh.us)
