Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation Wednesday that will pretty much allow anyone with any professional license to practice in Arizona without further state review.
But the governor insisted this is different than his decision to allow Uber to test its driverless cars on Arizona roads, halted after one of them hit and killed a pedestrian.
And he said it’s not the same as another bill he signed allowing Theranos to sell its novel blood tests to Arizona residents, tests that were subsequently found to be inaccurate.
“It’s apples and oranges,” Ducey said.
If nothing else, he said there needs to be some proof that the qualifications of someone with a medical license from another state must meet Arizona’s minimum standards.
And as to other professions, like architects and engineers? Ducey dismissed the concerns as irrelevant.
