[Histonet] States that require license

From:"Michelle McCoy"

Someone in a recent previous post had stated that they thought only one
state required state licensing-I know NY and FL do now. I read in an article
about NY state licensing http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/542005
law this excerpt:

*With one exception (WV), all states requiring licensure (CA, FL, GA, HI,
LA, MT, NV, ND, PR, RI, TN) recognize the American Society for Clinical
Pathology (ASCP) as an approved certifying agency.*
*Commissioner's regulations require candidates to pass a generalist
examination for CLT and CT. With the exception of the grandparenting period
(through September 1, 2008) specialists without generalist certification
will be required to take a generalist examination to qualify for licensure.*
-I am hoping to find out if this law applies to Histology as well
-If this is an up to date list of the states that require it, if so
-If grandfathered techs in these states had to take ascp or if they took a
different state test to get the state license.
-Is there any site anyone knows about that keeps up to date information on
what all the different states are doing regarding licensure requirements in
our field other than sifting through the archives here at histonet?
Thanks for any input-
