HB17-1057 - Interstate Physical Therapy Licensure Compact

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the adoption of an interstate compact to allow persons authorized to practice physical therapy in a state to obtain the privilege to practice physical therapy in other member states, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.

The bill enacts the 'Interstate Physical Therapy Licensure Compact Act' that allows physical therapists and physical therapist assistants licensed or certified in a compact member state to obtain a license or certificate to practice physical therapy in Colorado. The bill authorizes the physical therapy board to obtain fingerprints from applicants for a license or certification for the purposes of a fingerprint-based criminal history record check. The compact requires that the physical therapy board participate in the compact's data system and notify the compact commission of any adverse action taken by the board.

Physical therapists and physical therapy assistants are subject to the requirements of the 'Michael Skolnik Medical Transparency Act of 2010'.

$12,386 is appropriated to the department of regulatory agencies for use by the division of professions and occupations for implementation of the bill.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
