New ND Licensure Push in Iowa:

the Iowa Politics Insider states in "Naturopathic Medical Bill Advances in Iowa Senate":

"naturopathic physicians would be licensed by the Iowa Board of Medical Examiners under a bill approved Thursday by the Iowa Senate State Government Committee [huh?  naturopathy isn't even 'medical'...] Sen. Jack Hatch, a Des Moines Democrat who is the bill’s floor manager, said the proposal is unlikely to win final passage [it shouldn't!!!...] the bill would require naturopathic doctors to obtain a bachelor’s degree, followed by four years of medical education [but naturopathy school hugely IS'NT medical school!!!...] naturopathic medicine is an alternative form of medical care that includes natural remedies and emphasizes the body’s ability to heal itself [coded vitalism]."

Note: no comment.
