2021 Senate Bill 759: Facilitate out-of-state medical professionals practicing here during emergency

Public Act 167 of 2021

Introduced by Sen. Curt VanderWall R-Ludington on December 1, 2021
To establish that a licensed medical treatment professional in another state who would otherwise meet Michigan licensure requirements for rendering medical care during a staffing shortage caused by a public health emergency declared by the state health department, is not required to have a Michigan license to provide treatment here. This authority to let them practice largely exists already under current law, and the bill would clarify and slightly broaden it.   Official Text and Analysis.
