In the never-ending saga that is state occupational licensing, a new job has come to the attention of the State of Georgia, that of “lactation consultant.” House Bill 649, sponsored by Rep. Sharon Cooper (R- 43), Rep. Valerie Clark (R- 101), Rep. Pam Stephenson (D- 90), Rep. David Knight (R- 130) and Rep. Darrel Ealum (R- 153),  would require the licensure of lactation consultants, provide for an advisory committee, provide for licensure applications and establish examinations and license fees. The bill would be added to Chapter 34 of Title 43 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (the compilation of all Georgia laws), “relating to physicians, acupuncturists, and others.”
