  (4)  Other actions may be imposed as determined by the rules promulgated by the commission.

  4.  A home state's psychology regulatory authority shall investigate and take appropriate action with respect to reported inappropriate conduct engaged in by a licensee which occurred in a receiving state as it would if such conduct had occurred by a licensee within the home state.  In such cases, the home state's law shall control in determining any adverse action against a psychologist's license.

  5.  A distant state's psychology regulatory authority shall investigate and take appropriate action with respect to reported inappropriate conduct engaged in by a psychologist practicing under temporary authorization practice which occurred in that distant state as it would if such conduct had occurred by a licensee within the home state.  In such cases, distant state's law shall control in determining any adverse action against a psychologist's temporary authorization to practice.

  7.  No other judicial or administrative remedies shall be available to a psychologist in the event a compact state imposes an adverse action pursuant to subsection 3 of this section.
