The Board proposed the fee increase to compensate for the rising operating, legal, and personnel expenses that the Board has incurred in regulating those professions.

 

In response to questions by Representative Lee, Mr. Munsie stated that the Board notified its licensees of the fee increases by contacting their state professional associations. The Board had not publicized the proposed fee increases in its biannual newsletter because the newsletter had already been mailed prior to the Boardís decision to raise the fees.

 

In response to questions by Representative Allen, Mr. Munsie stated that the administrative regulation increased the dental licensure renewal fee by $25 and the hygienist licensure renewal fee by $5.
