Agency Decision Summary

While members concurred in the value of a listing of qualified supervisors, it was concluded that there was no authority in the statute to register supervisor or maintain a list of qualified persons.  Such authorization would require introduction of legislation in the General Assembly and a change in the law.  Therefore, the Board is unable to accomplish the request through an amendment to its regulations.
