Restoring Board Immunity Act of 2017 or the RBI Act

This bill grants antitrust immunity to state occupational licensing boards in states that satisfy occupational licensing law requirements, including: (1) requiring a board's actions to be authorized by a non-frivolous interpretation of the state's occupational licensing laws; and (2) using less restrictive alternatives to occupational licensing to address threats to public health, safety, or welfare. Such states must also establish an office to supervise boards or provide for judicial review of occupational licensing laws.
