STATE GOVERNMENT AND STATE AFFAIRS
OCCUPATIONAL LICENSING REFORM ACT
67-9306 [67-9406]. Licensure by endorsement — members of the military, veterans, and spouses. (1) A licensing authority shall establish a procedure for the issuance of licensure by endorsement to a member of the military, a former member of the military after discharge under honorable conditions, a veteran, or a spouse of any such person, if such person possesses current, valid, and unrestricted licensure in another state, district, or territory of the United States, or in any branch of the armed forces or the national guard. Each licensing authority shall promulgate applicable rules to implement the provisions of this subsection.
(2) Subsection (1) of this section shall not apply to a person who is a member of a profession or occupation covered by an interstate licensure compact that the person’s home state and Idaho have each adopted. In such a situation, a person shall apply for licensure pursuant to the terms of the applicable licensure compact rather than through licensure by endorsement. A person from a state that has not adopted an interstate licensure compact that Idaho has adopted is eligible for licensure by endorsement, provided that such person is otherwise eligible for licensure by endorsement under this section; however, such licensure shall be valid only in Idaho. A licensing authority for a profession or occupation affected by an interstate licensure compact that Idaho has adopted shall promulgate applicable rules to implement the provisions of this subsection.
