Michigan enacts CPA mobility legislation

Michigan has become the 24th state to enact CPA license mobility provisions on Wednesday, June 11 when Governor Jennifer Granholm signed House Bill 5936.

The bill, now Public Act 161 of 2008, was sponsored by Representative Andy Coulouris (D-Saginaw), chair of the House Committee on Banking and Financial Services, and met little resistance throughout the legislative process.

The Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants (MACPA) collaborated with the Michigan State Board of Accountancy, the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Growth, the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, The Accountants Coalition, and the AICPA to develop a sound mobile licensing policy focusing on protecting the public and the integrity of the CPA profession through lawful enforcement of licensing regulations, while allowing CPAs to serve out-of-state clients.
