Just about an hour ago, Governor Kelly signed SB 170, which included the PT Compact.  We will now have to wait until all details are worked out, including background checks and fingerprinting for all new licensee holders, in order for Kansas to begin allowing compact privilege holders to treat patients.  This process can take between 9-12 months.  

Here is the website that the Governor signed the bill (SB 170).

PT Compact Update:  On Wednesday, May 5th, 2021, the Kansas State Senate heard SB 170, which includes language for our PT Compact and it passed 40-0.  We are now awaiting Governor Kelly’s signature.  If she does not sign the bill within 10 days, the bill automatically becomes law without her signature. 
 
 Once the bill becomes law, APTA-Kansas will be working with FSBPT (the regulating body for the Compact) to ensure that we have everything properly set up and that rules and regulations are written for Kansas to start issuing compact privileges.  This process can take 9-12 months to be finalized.  We will keep everyone up to date as things progress, but for now, we are thrilled to have our bill pass both the House and Senate.  Thanks to all who made this into a reality!
