Marple reported shock and dismay after being notified by the Governor’s Office that he will not be reappointed to a second term.  Marple additionally expressed his appreciation for each Commissioner’s hard work and indicated he really enjoyed  the time he has served on the Commission. 


Hansen reported he has been told the general terms of the lease agreement has been reached but a lease had not yet been signed.  Under the new agreement, the division will have no room for expansion, and in addition, three record storage areas will be lost.  Klisares and Malek are working on this problem to see what, if anything can be done.  Records retention requirements for the office are being reviewed.  

Batts reported there have been 85 complaints opened so far this year. 

Malek reported current turn around for background checks is approximately 40 days.  There have been around 300 applications this year so far.  We received a report from the FBI’s audit conducted in April 2006 that indicated exceptional standards for Iowa.  

Klisares reported that she attended the eight hour broker pre-license course “Trust Accounts” on 3/21/07.  She indicated she enjoyed the course as it was interesting and very educational.


Motion made by Berry to approve the proposed new pre-license education requirement rules as written to file as Notice of Intended Action, second Marple. Motion carried unanimously.

Griffel reported new pre-license education requirement rules will be filed April 6th and a public hearing is scheduled for May 23rd.


McLaughlin reported on legislation the Association is sponsoring and legislation of interest that they are tracking.
