General Information
Action Summary The Board for Waterworks and Wastewater Works Operators and Onsite Sewage System Professionals is amending existing regulations to conform to SB 1406, enacted by the General Assembly during the 2021 Special Session I. The legislation limits dissemination of criminal history record information and clarifies that convictions for certain misdemeanor marijuana offenses are not to be disclosed to the agency. Board regulations concerning qualifications for licensure and standards of conduct must be updated to reflect the statutory changes to § 19.2-389.3 of the Code of Virginia. This action conforms the regulations to the law and is exempt from the Administrative Process Act because there is no agency discretion pursuant to § 2.2-4006(A)(4)(a) of the Code of Virginia. [RIS2]
