HB 752: Interstate Licensure Compact signed by Governor Kemp

On August 3rd, 2020, Governor Kemp signed HB 752 into law, championed by Representative Dave Belton.This legislation will allow Georgia’s Physical Therapy Board to fully join the compact, furthering portability goals and continuing to improve access for patients. The legislation passed unanimously this year.

Special thanks to Lauren Pollow, APTA GA lobbyist, and Dr. Barney Poole, APTA Georgia Legislative Chair, as well as all legislative committee members, for moving this bill through in the most unique legislative session ever.

Thank you also to all of our members--PTs, PTAs, and students. Your advocacy, attendance at Physical Therapy Day at the Capitol, and your numerous emails and phone calls helped us get this bill across the finish line!

APTA Georgia will communicate with the FSBPT and Georgia State Board of Physical Therapy on educational efforts and information related to the Compact and when privileges can begin to be issued. Stay tuned to Perspectives for more information.
