331.032. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the board of chiropractic examiners may issue a temporary license to practice chiropractic as follows:
(1) To a chiropractor holding a current and unrestricted license to practice chiropractic issued pursuant to the laws of a state other than Missouri;
(2) A temporary license issued pursuant to this section shall be valid for a maximum period of ninety days and the board shall not issue more than two temporary licenses to an applicant during any calendar year;
(3) An applicant for a temporary license shall submit to the board a complete application on a form prescribed by the board, pay an application fee as determined by rule of the board and furnish proof satisfactory to the board that the applicant meets all requirements for licensure, or examination therefor, as set forth in section 331.030;
(4) In addition to all other requirements herein, an applicant for a temporary license pursuant to this section shall include with such applicant's application the name of the chiropractic school or college from which the applicant graduated and the date of such graduation, and evidence of such applicant's current and unrestricted licensure in another state, including the number of such license and a photocopy thereof along with any other evidence deemed necessary by the board;
(5) All provisions of this chapter that apply to applicants for and holders of licenses to practice chiropractic, other than as specified in this section, shall apply to applicants for and holders of temporary licenses, including the board's authority to conduct any investigation the board considers appropriate to verify an applicant's credentials, moral character and fitness to receive a temporary license and the board's authority to take actions pursuant to the provisions of this chapter or any other provision of state law. The board of chiropractic examiners may adopt rules the board considers necessary to implement the provisions of this section. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028. This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2001, shall be invalid and void.
