(b) If the Joint Standing Committee on Government Organization does not approve an application for regulation, establishment, revision or expansion of the scope of practice of a professional or occupational group or organization, any party who continues to propose the regulation, establishment, revision or expansion must reapply in accordance with the provisions of this article.
