- Bill Butcher provided a legislative update regarding House Bill 1388. The bill essentially outlined a waiver for military personnel that included a provision for staff sergeant or higher to gain equivalency standards. Representative Koppleman submitted the bill. Currently, the administrative rules already provide waivers and equivalencies for these former military personnel. The language concerning the staff sergeant waiver has been removed. The bill now outlines that the board can waive and determine equivalency standards and will be in statute. There is no change to the boardís current policy, rule, structure, or practice. The only change is it is now in the statute as is similarly outlined in rule.
- Francine Johnson gave an update on the Bristol Companies. Edward Erickson, as directed at the last meeting, sent a letter to Daniel Richmond outlining the grievance process and the standards for becoming licensed. To date, Daniels has not submitted an application, nor has there been any correspondence relating to any grievances or other companies in the oil field that are allegedly in violation. The matter is closed unless new information or requests develop.

It was mentioned that there is another complaint received by the board on February 25, 2013 concerning a member of Advance Security staff at Essencia Hospital.
