Council on State Governments Passes Resolution in Support of EMS Licensure Compact

Sep 08, 2014

During its recent annual meeting, the Council of State Governments (CSG) passed a resolution in support of the Recognition of the EMS Personnel Licensure Compact (REPLICA). CSG is the nation’s only organization that fosters the exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy. Its Governing Board is comprised of the 56 member jurisdictions whose delegates include each state’s Governor, state legislative representatives, and each state’s highest ranking judicial official. Through the National Center for Interstate Compacts in partnership with NASEMSO, the CSG encourages member jurisdictions to consider the new interstate agreement that would facilitate the movement of EMS agency personnel across state borders.
