Pennsylvania doctors are getting some good news when they attempt to renew their 2-year state licenses.
A spokesman for the Department of State says the State Board of Medicine voted this year to waive the $360 cost for medical doctors and says the board has about $30 million in the bank, which is more than four times its $7 million-a-year budget.
The money pays to investigate complaints, take disciplinary action and to develop new regulations and administer the board itself.
The deadline to renew for 2013 and 2014 is the end of December.
State law prevents surplus money in that account from being used for other purposes by state government, which is in the midst of a several-year budget crunch.
