65-5005. Same; review of reports by secretary; recommendations of secretary; final report to legislature. (a) Within 120 days after receiving the report and recommendations of the technical committee relating to a credentialing application, the secretary shall prepare a final report for the legislature. In preparing the final report, the secretary shall apply the criteria established by K.S.A. 65-5006 and 65-5007 and amendments to these sections. The final report shall be submitted to the speaker of the house of representatives, to the president of the senate and to the chairpersons of the committees on public health and welfare for consideration by their respective committees. The secretary shall include the report of the technical committee in the final report prepared for submission to the legislature. The secretary need not be bound by the recommendations of a technical committee.

(b) If the secretary determines after consideration of the report of the technical committee and the evidence and testimony presented to the technical committee that all criteria established by law or by rules and regulations for credentialing have not been met and that credentialing is not appropriate, the secretary shall recommend that no legislative action be taken on a credentialing application. If the secretary determines that clear and convincing evidence which was more than hypothetical examples or testimonials was presented to the technical committee that the applicant occupational or professional group of health care personnel should be credentialed by the state, that the applicant occupational or professional group of health care personnel has met all the criteria established by law or by rules and regulations for credentialing and that credentialing by the state is appropriate, the secretary shall recommend that the occupational or professional group of health care personnel be credentialed. If the secretary recommends that an occupational or professional group of health care personnel be credentialed, the secretary shall recommend: (1) The level or levels of credentialing, and such recommendation shall be based upon a finding by the secretary, stated in the report, that all criteria established by law or by rules and regulations concerning the recommended level or levels of credentialing have been met; (2) an agency to be responsible for the credentialing process and the level or levels of credentialing; and (3) such matters as the secretary deems appropriate for possible inclusion in legislation relating to the recommendation for credentialing.

(c) No group of health care personnel shall be credentialed except by an act of the legislature. The final report of the secretary and the report and recommendations of the technical committee shall constitute recommendations to the legislature and shall not be binding upon the legislature. The legislature may dispose of such recommendations and reports as it deems appropriate.
