Licensure Bill Introduced in Michigan

Aug 20, 2020

On Aug. 17, Rep. Rodney Wakeman introduced House Bill 6105 in the Michigan Legislature. The bill will update the existing radiation control rules and add requirements for operators of ionizing medical radiation equipment. HB 6105, as introduced, will require radiographers, computed tomography technologists, radiation therapists and limited x-ray machine operators to meet educational standards along with successful completion of the appropriate American Registry of Radiologic Technologists or Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board examination. The standards will be reviewed by an ionizing radiation advisory committee created by the director of the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity.

HB 6105 has been referred to House Committee on Health Policy for further action.

A workgroup of representatives from the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, ARRT, Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and Michigan Society of Radiologic Technologists will continue to work with Rep. Wakeman to amend the bill to include requirements and scope of practice for radiologist assistants and nuclear medicine technologists.
