Hughes appointed himself and Daniels to serve on the Investigation Committee in July.

The Commission reviewed and discussed the reorganization and clarification of the present IAC Chapter 193E. Hansen reported that the revision and re-writing has been a long process covering approximately 2 years to accomplish. Input has been solicited from licensees and the public throughout the process via the Internet, List serve, and division newsletter. Hansen noted that Griebel, Paul McLaughlin, IAR, and Tim Meline, Education Instructor, have been involved from the beginning and invaluable to the project. Hansen reported the rules are ready to be approved to file as Notice of Intended Action.

Woline moved, second by Daniels to approve the new proposed 193E 20 chapters to file as Notice of Intended Action. Roll call vote as follows: Daniels, aye; Woline, aye; and Hughes, aye. Motion carried unanimously.

The Commission considered and discussed the need to raise fees. The declining fee income and continued rising costs have resulted in the need for additional revenues to support the daily functions of the Commission. The actual license fee had not been raised in over 25 years. Woline moved, second by Daniels to (1) increase broker, firm, and salesperson license fees $50 (2) increase all branch office, additional license, trade name license fees $20, and (3) assess a $25 fee for certification of a license. Roll call vote as follows: Daniels, aye; Woline, aye; and Hughes, aye. Motion carried unanimously.

Hughes reported that he has been invited to speak at the next Cedar Rapids Board of Realtor’s meeting.
