Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Marriage and Family Therapy Licensing Act. Provides that the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation may issue a license as a licensed marriage and family therapist, without the required examination, to an applicant who is currently registered, certified, or licensed to practice marriage and family therapy in another state, territory, or jurisdiction (rather than the requirements for licensure in another state or territory must be substantially equivalent to the requirements of the Act or the person must have possessed individual qualifications at the time of applying for licensure that were substantially equivalent to the requirements then in force in this State), submits an application on a form that is approved by the Department, and pays the application fee set by the Department. Provides that an individual applying for licensure as a licensed marriage and family therapist who has been licensed at the independent level in another United States jurisdiction without discipline (rather than 5 years without discipline) is not required to submit proof of completion of the education, professional experience, and supervision otherwise required. Makes conforming changes.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Marriage and Family Therapy Licensing Act. Provides that an individual applying for licensure as a licensed marriage and family therapist who has been licensed without discipline at the independent level in another United States jurisdiction for at least 30 months during the 5 consecutive years preceding application (rather than for 5 consecutive years) is not required to submit proof of completion of the education, professional experience, and supervision required under a specified provision of the Act.
