Well, it’s about damn time!

Yesterday, June 7, 2021 Governor Greg Abbott signed into law that Texas has joined the Federation of State Medical Board’s Interstate Medical Licensure Compact. There will be much more information coming out, but for now read the press release found at this link https://www.imlcc.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Information-Release-Texas-becomes-33rd-member.pdf

June 8, 2021
For Immediate Release
The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact Commission is pleased
to announce that on June 7, 2021, Governor Greg Abbott signed
into law House Bill 1616 which was passed by the Texas Legislature
on May 21, 2021.
Texas is the 33rd member jurisdiction to join the Compact.
The Compact now has 31 states, the District of Columbia and the
Territory of Guam as member jurisdictions. Legislation has passed
in Delaware, with the Governor’s signature expected shortly. There
is currently legislation pending in 8 states, including North Carolina
and Ohio.
Please contact Marschall Smith at [email protected]
with questions.

If you have never heard of the Compact or perhaps you have but have not looked at the requirements lately now is the time. This action is so overdue, in my opinion.

So come on physicians we need you in Texas!
