Protecting public health through regulation of licensees and registrants.

Licensing Freedom Act

On May 19, 2017, Lieutenant Governor Brad Little issued Executive Order 2017-06 (“Order”), the Licensing Freedom Act, which aims to assess whether licensure requirements are necessary and in the public interest. In addition, the Order aims to identify recommendations for improvement, modification or elimination of licensing requirements or other regulatory burdens.

The Board of Pharmacy is committed to occupational licensing reform and has worked closely with community stakeholders to comprehensively identify categories of licensure to eliminate, and to identify and remove outdated regulations that are stifling the emergence of new technology or business models. While rulemaking to this effect is ongoing, the Board of Pharmacy invites feedback from any interested person on or before May 1, 2018 to help us further the goal articulated in the Order. Any and all feedback may be submitted directly to the Board of Pharmacy by emailing, or to the Lieutenant Governor through the following website:
