Nebraska is authorized to join an interstate compact for audiologists and speech-language pathologists under a bill passed March 25.
LB14, introduced by Bellevue Sen. Carol Blood, adopts the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Interstate Compact. Under the compact, individuals licensed in a member state may practice in any other member state without having to obtain a separate license.
The compact, which requires adoption by 10 states, is not yet in effect.
Senators approved the bill on a 47-0 vote.
