SB1468 is a bill that proposes to allow individuals holding or applying for occupational licenses to bypass administrative appeals and directly seek judicial review if they believe their license has been denied, suspended, or revoked due to political reasons or bias. The bill would enable the court to reinstate the occupational license and award damages and attorney fees if it finds in favor of the licensee or applicant. The term "occupational license" is defined as any form of agency permission that allows an individual to use an occupational title or work in a lawful occupation, trade, or profession. This bill amends title 41, chapter 6, article 11 of the Arizona Revised Statutes by adding section 41-1093.08, and it is related to occupational regulation.
