§ 493Record of Conviction Related to a Licensee’s Qualifications, Functions, and Duties
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, in a proceeding conducted by a board within the department pursuant to law to deny an application for a
license or to suspend or revoke a license or otherwise take disciplinary action against a person who holds a license, upon the ground that the
applicant or the licensee has been convicted of a crime substantially related to the qualifications, functions, and duties of the licensee in question,
the record of conviction of the crime shall be conclusive evidence of the fact that the conviction occurred, but only of that fact, and the board may
inquire into the circumstances surrounding the commission of the crime in order to fix the degree of discipline or to determine if the conviction is
substantially related to the qualifications, functions, and duties of the licensee in question.
As used in this section, "license" includes "certificate," "permit," "authority," and "registration."
This section shall become inoperative on July 1, 2020, and, as of January 1, 2021, is repealed.
