Public Rules Hearing

12:45pm
Caille Library, Sioux Falls

Present:  Laura Woitte, Linda Zeller, Karen Kappel, Twyla Fritz, Rebecca Dykema, and Joyce Vos

Guests:  Dan Jensen, SD School of Massage Therapy and Don Spade, Sioux Falls Therapeutic Massage and Education Center

M/S/P Kappel/Zeller to call the hearing to order at 12:49pm.

It was explained that 20:76:04:06 was repealed because it was redundant and in conflict with 20:76:04:01.  Also the board’s legal counsel did not want a copy of the initial complaint until the complaint process was complete and ready to be assigned for investigation.

It was explained that the SD schools listed in 20:76:08:01 are given until July 1, 2014 to complete their accreditation or their students would no longer qualify for licensure.  Whereas, all other applicants must come from schools that are national accredited (or approved) per 20:76:08:02 as soon as the Rules are approved by the Rules Review Committee this year.

There was no opposition to the proposed Rules.

Other unrelated items were discussed.  There were no other comments related to the proposed Rules.  There were no written comments offered before or during the hearing.

M/S/P Zeller/Fritz to proceed with the process with the Rules as presented.

M/S/P Kappel/Fritz to adjourn the hearing at 1:17pm.
