The following section would be repealed.  Different language to "replace it" has been proposed elsewhere.

(a) All individuals who wish to practice chiropractic in this state, and who are not otherwise licensed under law, must successfully pass an examination given by or at the direction of the board.

(b) An applicant for licensure through examination shall submit to the Board a written application, on a form provided by the Board. The information contained in the application shall be verified by affidavit of the applicant. Along with the application, an applicant shall also submit a nonrefundable fee for verification of educational courses/grades for college and a nonrefundable examination fee, as provided by §75.7 of this title (relating to Fees and Charges for Public Information). Upon successfully passing the examination, an applicant shall submit a fee for a new license as provided in §75.7 of this title. The amount of the fee shall be prorated from the month of examination to the birth month of the applicant.

(c) Applications for examination must be legibly printed in ink or typewritten on the board form, which will be furnished by the board upon request.

(d) Upon receipt of the completed application, required supporting materials, and required fees, an applicant will receive, within 30 days, written notice of qualification to take the jurisprudence examination.

(e) The filing of an application and tendering of the fees to the board shall not in any way obligate the board to admit the applicant to examination until such applicant has been approved by the board as meeting the statutory requirements for admission to the examination for licensure.

(f) Any person furnishing false information on such application shall be denied the right to take the examination, or if the applicant has been licensed before it is made known to the Board of the falseness of such information, such license shall be subject to suspension, revocation or cancellation in accordance with the Chiropractic Act, Occupations Code §201.501.
