The Senate of Rhode Island approved on June 19, 2014 Senate Resolution 3125 to create a "Special Senate Task Force to Study the Evaluation and Certification of Foreign-Trained Professionals." As provided in the preamble to the resolution, the creation of the task force was motivated by the fact that 'countless immigrants come to Rhode Island with training and professional certifications from their country of origin but cannot practice their profession because they lack similar certification from the state,' and that helping 'trained pharmacists, nurses, and doctors who cannot practice due to a lack of US and RI certifications' to 'obtain in-state certification can help address the great need for talented health professionals in Rhode Island, particularly those with cultural and language competencies.' The task force is to report its findings and recommendations to the Senate on or before March 4, 2015.
