New Jersey May Enter the Counseling Compact



Assembly Bill 5311, introduced in the New Jersey Legislature on March 20, 2023, would enter New Jersey into the Counseling Compact. The Counseling Compact is an interstate contract allowing professional counselors licensed and residing in a compact member state to practice in other compact member states without the need for multiple licenses. The Commission governing the Counseling Compact has many powers, including the power to investigate and discipline professional counselors for misconduct and communicate to member states information concerning a professional counselor who is under investigation or who has had his or her license to practice professional counseling in any other member state revoked or restored.
