Report: Proposed bill in Florida would restructure state’s pharmacy board
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The legislature is mulling a bill that would alter the structure of Florida’s Board of Pharmacy, raising from one to three the number of seats for pharmacists representing both smaller and larger pharmacies, according to the Associated Press.
The measure, proposed by Sen. Denise Grimsley, would also reduce from five to one the number of at-large posts for those with pharmacy licenses, the report states.
According to the report, the proposed legislation comes on the heels of a measure that would have bolstered from three to six the number of pharmacy technicians who can be overseen by a pharmacist. The proposal raised some eyebrows as many in the industry reportedly thought the board — not the lLegislature — should be able to make such a change.
