LICENSURE REGULATION UPDATES

Update November 22, 2016:

GREAT NEWS! The proposed licensure regulations have been published in the 29 Oct 2016 Pennsylvania Bulletin. There was a 30-day public comment period which ended on November 28. Please take a moment to review the proposed regulations.

The PSHA Executive Board has thoroughly studied the proposed regulations and are quite pleased with them. I have shared our comments below. We have sent our comments to the Board of Examiners Counsel for consideration. The BOE is required to consider and respond to all comments made by the public. We hope that you are in agreement with our comments, therefore may not see the need to also send a comment. The next step is the comments then need to be sent to the IRRC and the standing committees in the House and Senate that deal with professional licensure.

We have requested a swift completion of the regulatory review process so that Pennsylvania's new speech language pathologist graduates can obtain a provisional license and obtain jobs in PA, in addition to all of the other benefits of our new law.

In addition to the comments, I wanted to point out that the regulations include an increase in the PA application and renewal fees. The state of PA has not had a fee increase since prior to 1984! The fee increase is modest and the biennial renewal increases to $65. Neighboring states biennial fees exceed $100!

Special thanks to Dave Tive, PSHA Lobbyist, for his constant focus, monitoring, and guidance regarding the status of our regulations.

We are almost there! Keep an eye on our website for updates!
