Information: What this bill does is give a lot control (approved list) of who is appointed to the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure to the Kentucky Medical Association. The oversight of the KMA is done by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure. While we at TBK do not like all these government controls, the taxpayers are paying for them and as long as they are there needs to be accountability. Nothing prevents the governor from requesting advice from the KMA right now on a good candidate to serve on the board. Further the KMA is a big proponent of “traditional” medicine, and we feel that this would be a step in silencing alternative forms of medicine and healing.
