Licensure Renewal Requirements

It is my understanding that after 2015, if you have earned an additional degree (or a certain number of credits), you are no longer required to obtain 90 recertification points every 4-7 years. The educator is granted tenure and/or the required recert points are not as often. Is there anyway that this can be retroactive for staff who earned a degree in 2015? Is there a plan to reduce the required amount for those with multiple degrees?
