  • Changes to the breastfeeding regulations,
  • Changes to background clearance regulations,
  • Changes to CPR and first aid regulations to comply with federal requirements,
  • Changes to lead water testing regulations to align with state law enacted in 2019,
  • Changes to provisional licensure regulations, and
