Well almost.  Some Pennsylvania licensing boards have that power now, but it was unclear if others did.  Therefore, the law is being amended.  House Bill 261 has passed both the House and the Senate and, as of January 15, sits on Governor Corbett’s desk for signature.  All indications are that he will sign this bill.   Once signed, the bill will go into effect sixty (60) days later.

The bill will provide the authority for each licensing board to deny, suspend or revoke any license for failure to pay any fines, interest, or costs assessed as a result of a disciplinary proceeding.  It also provides that if the amount due exceeds one thousand ($1,000.00) dollars and remain unpaid the board has the ability to enter the amount as a civil judgment against the individual or corporate entity.  This judgment remains of record and does not need to ever be revived.  The board has up to sixty (60) months to enter such a judgment.  Further, once paid the board has up to ninety (90) days to satisfy their judgment.

In my opinion, this is good fix because certainly the intention has always been to be able to discipline a licensee for failure to pay their fines. I do not see the requirement for entering the fine as a judgment but generally this should never be an issue for a licensee.  I have been able to negotiate payment terms in cases where payment was difficult.

If you have any questions about licensing please contact me at jmcguire@c-wlaw.com.
 

Note:  The Governor signed this bill on February 4, 2014.

It is a rule if a person cannot able to pay the cost and the fines in the society. Because if a person break some laws then he have to pay the fines in the authorities.
