Senate votes to repeal naturopath law

The Senate has voted 27-6 in favor of SB 1014, to repeal the 2005 law that set up a state licensing system for naturopaths. It's never gone into effect, because warring groups of naturopaths have disagreed on the necessary qualifications, meaning rules to implement the law never have passed. Sen. Joyce Broadsword, R-Sagle, said, "This, in my opinion, is the way to allow them a fresh start." Broadsword said the groups are talking now, and she's hopeful they can work together over the summer and propose new licensing legislation next year. The bill now moves to the House.
