S.F. No. 1694 adds criteria for the Commissioner of Health to set aside a disqualification for an individual seeking to work or working in the substance use disorder treatment field.

Section 1 (144.057, subdivision 3) requires the Commissioner of Health to use the same set aside criteria as the Commissioner of Human Services with respect to individuals employed or seeking employment in the substance use disorder field.

Section 2 (245C.02, subdivision 20) defines “substance use disorder treatment field” as a licensed, registered program exclusively serving individuals 18 years old and older for substance use disorder treatment or recovery.

Section 3 (245C.22, subdivision 4) specifies the criteria for setting aside a disqualification for an individual seeking employment in the substance use disorder field.

Section 4 (245C.22, subdivision 5)  provides an exception for a set-aside for a person employed in the substance use disorder field, under subdivision 4, where the individual received a previous set aside for a different program or agency.
