On May 13 and May 18, 2016, Noon-1:30 p.m. (Eastern), CLEAR and CAC are jointly hosting a 2-part webinar series: Alternative Approaches for Complying with the U.S. Supreme Court's Decision in North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade CommissionRegister at http://clearhq.org/event-2219714
States are beginning to consider enacting new laws, policies, rules and procedures to bring their occupational licensing boards into compliance with the U.S. Supreme Court's holdings in North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade Commission if they want to retain immunity from anti-trust actions. There are two routes to retaining this immunity. First, they could change the composition of their boards so they no longer are controlled by a majority of "active market participants." Second, they could provide for active supervision of board decisions/actions that have anti-trust implications. Various possible approaches for achieving one or both of these ends will be explored during two 90-minute webinars offered by CLEAR and the Citizen Advocacy Center (CAC).
This paper explores eight approaches states might take to retain immunity from federal anti-trust liability, given the North Carolina Dental decision. The discussion reflects the views of state actors, including attorneys general, who have grappled with the ramifications of the Court’s decision. Download white paper.
