No requirements

I don't believe in the need for requirements to practice as a psychologist.  Everyone should be able to be a psychologist.  Just hang your shingle and start to practice like in NV.  It seems to work fine there.

Moving in the right direction

I am in favor of the proposed changes.  You are moving toward a more realistic position.  I'll be content when you eliminate entirely the face to face requirement.
