The Interim Rules committee had a marathon day for its last meeting of the 2017 interim legislative term. Twenty-one rules packets were reviewed starting at 10 a.m. and concluding at 4:50 p.m. One observation for this interim is that there were no opponents ever present to testify against the rules presented. The only opponents appeared to be committee members for which some of the rules were reverted to a prior step. Such was the case on this last day of rules hearing.

• The Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners proposed rule clarification on time frame for individuals renewing their license through the interstate medical licensure compact, and established the different options for the Board when it considers mirroring physician discipline from another state. Basically, the rules allow the board to acknowledge the disciplinary action in another state and determine to what extent it should be effective in this state and if there should be any restrictions on the license if granted.
