The House County and Municipal Government Committee approved HB441 by Rep. Ron Johnson, R-Sylacauga, which would have modified business license requirements for the home health, hospice and durable medical equipment industry. The full House never considered the bill in the 2017 regular session. In 2016, the former governor pocket vetoed identical legislation.
Under the bill, qualified home health care, hospice or durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics or health-care supply providers would have only needed a city business license in the municipalities where its headquarters or branch office were located and in those cities where it had $75,000 or more in annual gross receipts.
