Interstate Medical Licensure Compact Modification Advances

Legislation that would allow Minnesota to participate in the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC) has cleared several committees in both bodies, and awaits action on the House and Senate floors.  

The bills (HF 637/SF 583), authored by Rep. Kelly Morrison, MD, (DFL – Deephaven) and Sen. Mark Johnson (R – East Grand Forks), would allow Minnesota physicians to apply for expedited licensure in IMLC states, including Wisconsin, Iowa, and South Dakota.. A full list of states participating in the IMLC is available here

Minnesota adopted legislation to enter the Compact during the 2015 legislative session but must pass these bills to meet new federal law enforcement background check requirements.
