Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
2015 Wisconsin Act 116
ratified and entered Wisconsin into the Interstate
Medical Licensure Compact (compact), which provides for, as stated in the compact,
“a streamlined process that allows physicians to become licensed in multiple states."
The compact provides that a state may withdraw from the compact by repealing the
statute authorizing the compact, but that a withdrawal does not take effect until one
year after the effective date of that repeal. 2015 Act 116
provided for the repeal of
the statutes authorizing the compact on December 16, 2019, which, under the
compact, would consequently result in Wisconsin's withdrawal from the compact.
This bill repeals the provisions in 2015 Act 116
that provided for the repeal of
the statutes authorizing the compact.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
