HB 57; 2R - Enact Physical Therapy Licensure Compact

This bill would make it easier for physical therapists to practice by establishing a “˜compact’ between states, meaning that a therapist licensed in any of the states in the compact would be allowed to practice regardless of which state they are licensed to practice. This evades the restrictions requiring therapists to only practice in the state in which they are licensed.

Civitas Action believes that professional licensure requirements create unnecessary barriers to people wanting to practice their profession, restricts competition and raises prices. The conservative vote is yes.
