TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The regulatory board for Arizona’s doctors will resume issuing new physician licenses.

Arizona Medical Board members made the decision during a special meeting Wednesday in Tucson.

The board had frozen licensing due to legal problems with new state legislation intended to better identify allopathic doctors with a past history of felonies or misdemeanors involving “moral turpitude” through fingerprinting.

The board said the FBI was not cooperating with the legislation, which took effect Sept. 2.

Board members voted to resume issuing new physician licenses with the stipulation that licensees must submit a notarized statement that they don’t have any undisclosed criminal convictions in any other states or countries.

A failure to disclose such information could result in license revocation.
