Griebel reported on her Executive Order # 8 involvement. She has reviewed and made suggestions on drafts of the first eight new chapters. The information utilized on a day-to-day basis by licensees will be much easier to read and understand once the Rules have been reorganized. As a reminder, when the Commission closes cases, they need to be very precise in articulating the reasons for closing cases. The thorough orders will need to be available in case Judicial Review is sought regarding any case closed by the Commission or any other licensing board.

Hughes expressed concern that by today's standards the $1000 limit Commission assessed civil penalties is too low to be effective. He recommended that the Commission consider taking steps necessary to raise the limit.

Griebel advised that legislation would be required to change the civil penalty limit.

Hughes moved, seconded by Miller to put consideration of Commission proposed legislative change to raise the civil penalty limit on the agenda for September 20, 2001. Motion carried unanimously.

Hansen reported that Executive Order 8 is progressing and noted that input is continuing to be solicited relating to the new proposed chapters. Tim Meline, Paul McLaughlin, and Pam Griebel have provided immense input, according to Hansen.

Griffel reported that an Instructor Development Workshop will be held on Friday and Saturday, August 11 and 12. Speakers will address the proposed new rules, Megan's Law, and drugs and the real estate agent.
