- District 14
The bill enacts the "Interstate Licensed Professional Counselors Compact", which, once effective, will allow licensed professional counselors in any state that has joined the compact (member state) to provide: Licensed professional counselor services in each member state under a privilege to practice; and Telehealth services in each member state under a privilege to practice. The bill authorizes the state board of licensed professional counselor examiners (board) to promulgate rules and to facilitate Colorado's participation in the compact, including notification to the Counseling Compact Commission (commission) established by the compact of any adverse action taken by the board against a Colorado licensed professional counselor. The commission includes a delegate from each member state and has the powers and duties set forth in the bill. The compact becomes effective on the date the compact is enacted in the tenth member state. The bill appropriates $104,538 to the department of regulatory agencies for use by the division of professions and occupations to implement the bill.
