Permits medical and professional licensing boards to include orders requiring repayment of certain costs relating to cease and desist proceedings. Includes within the cease and desist statute failure to obtain a certificate required for sellers of preneed funeral services and merchandise. Allows the state board of funeral and cemetery service to issue a cease and desist order against a person who solicits or sells preneed funeral services and merchandise if the person has not obtained a preneed certificate from the board, even if the person possesses an active funeral director license, funeral home license, embalmer license, or cemetery registration. Amends the law governing the auctioneer consumer recovery fund, real estate recovery fund, and plumbing recovery fund to provide that petitions requesting payment from the funds are filed with the respective licensing commission instead of with the court in which the underlying judgment against the licensee was entered.
