    Good news, indeed. But has it really been since 1999 that a state has removed supervision requirements? What about California? The older I get the more I work - the more I work the faster time goes. The Big Engineer is probably telling me it's time to retire since I have NO patience for the paperwork nonsense we have to endure now and the pessimist's sure view of the future.

    Opt out is not the same as removing supervision. To get opt out status you must practice independently according to state law.
    OPT out is ONLY for billing purposes. It has absolutely nothing to do with practice.
