The chair of the state's Medical Examining Board said last week that he expects doctors should be able to obtain a license under the interstate licensure compact in January.

"We want to be issuing the first licenses by Jan. 1," said Dr. Kenneth Simons, who called it a conservative timeline. Simons serves as one of the state's commissioners for the group developing the compact.
