|Petition Title||Elimination of grace period for renewal of lapsed or inactive license|
|Date Filed||4/13/2016 [Transmittal Sheet]|
To eliminate the allowance for a person to reactivate or reinstate a license by payment of the required fee within one renewal cycle. The regulation appears to allow a person to let his license lapse and then pay the reinstatement fee without meeting the requirements for continued competency for renewal of licensure.
In accordance with Virginia law, the petition to amend the regulations has been filed with the Register of Regulations for publication on May 2, 2016. It is also posted on the Virginia Regulatory Townhall at www.townhall.virginia.gov and will be available for comment on-line on that date. Comment on the petition from interested parties is requested until June 1, 2016.
Following receipt of all comments on the petition, the request to examine requirements for persons reactivating or reinstating a license will be considered by the Board at its meeting on July 19, 2016.
