From Dr. Rick Barnett:
We are awaiting the report from our Office of Professional Regulation. In the Fall of 2021, they conducted the first ever Sunrise Review process, which included public hearings/comments, and testimony from opponents and proponents.
While the VT Board of Psychological Examiners voted to NOT support the bill as currently written, they indicated that a bill that includes more robust training may win their support in the future. When the report comes from the Office of Professional Regulation we will share it, along with our next steps. We anticipate an ongoing process to continue to generate support during this legislative session (which began last week).
Thank you to all who contributed their participation in the public hearings, comments and testimonies. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
