RE: Please support the chiropractic licensure exam removal AND technical amendment to create new jobs in Wisconsin:
Dear Wisconsin Representative:
Please support the Budget provision that removes the chiropractic licensure exam requirement AND the proposed technical amendment that grandfathers in applicants who have met the current NBCE exam requirements all of which will create new jobs in Wisconsin.
The short-lived Wisconsin practical exam has proven to be extremely flawed and thus an invalid tool for testing for chiropractic licensure. The Chiropractic Society of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association both strongly endorse the current Budget provision that removes the Wisconsin exam requirements for licensure.
No one believes moving the goal posts is fair, however unless a requested technical amendment to the exam removal is included in the current Budget that is exactly what will happen.
There is a limited number of applicants who now find themselves facing a set of new goal posts (new NBCE licensure requirements) preventing them from coming back home to Wisconsin to practice and create new jobs
Please support a technical amendment to grandfather the current applicants whom have met all of the current NBCE exam requirements. This amendment would keep the current goal posts intact and correct the NO NOTICE issue associated with the new requirements.
Please do not support a proposed amendment to have the applicants retake “at no cost” the already proven invalid Wisconsin practical examination in the fall. The retake proposal is financially improbable if not impossible as DSPS lost $23,322.00 on the first 2 exam administrations. The State taxpayers should not waste additional money paying for applicants to retake an invalid exam when a superior and fairer solution is available.
The grandfather amendment is fair and would not cost the State additional revenue; in fact it would immediately create high paying jobs.
Please support both the removal of the examination and the technical amendment to grandfather in applicants that is not only budget neutral it immediately creates new jobs in Wisconsin.
