Medical Licensure Compact Legislation Signed into Law
On July 1, 2021, Governor DeWine signed legislation to enter Ohio into the Medical Licensure Compact into law. Ohio ACEP thanks bill sponsors Senators Kristina Roegner and Steve Huffman for their work on this important bill. Ohio ACEP lent their support to SB 6 during the committee process in both the House and Senate. In addition to Ohio ACEP, supportive testimony was submitted by the Ohio State Medical Association, the Ohio Hospital Association, several other medical specialty societies and a few hospital systems. We look forward to the State Medical Board turning their attention to implementation of this law.
