|Agency Decision Summary||
At its meeting today, the Board decided not to initiate rulemaking based on your request. In doing so, the Board was particularly concerned about the reduction in supervisory hours and noted that regulations already allow up to 900 hours of an internship to be counted towards a residency. Therefore, it determined that the current requirement is necessary to ensure competency in counselors serving Virginia clients.
