Provides that the Department shall determine an inactive licensee's fitness to resume active status and may require successful completion of a practical examination or any other method the Department deems appropriate. Provides that the licensee is authorized to effect a final disposition of unclaimed cremated remains if no person lawfully entitled to the custody of the remains makes or has made a proper request for them within 60 days (instead of 1 year) of the date of death of the cremated person. Allows licenses to be applied for electronically. Allows the written notice of proceedings to be served by email. Provides that the Department shall provide a certified shorthand reporter to take down the testimony and preserve a record of all proceedings at specified hearings. Includes additional factors that the Funeral Directors and Embalmers Licensing and Disciplinary Board may take into consideration in making recommendations for any disciplinary action.
