TITLE 22.EXAMINING BOARDS

Part 8. TEXAS APPRAISER LICENSING AND CERTIFICATION BOARD

Chapter 153. RULES RELATING TO PROVISIONS OF THE TEXAS APPRAISER LICENSING AND CERTIFICATION ACT

22 TAC §153.9

The Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board proposes amendments to §153.9, concerning Applications. The proposed amendment removes the notary requirement from Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board forms previously adopted by reference. The proposed amendment also revises the form title and form number at the bottom of each form.

The Application for Provisional Appraiser License, TALCB Form APL 2-0 (804) and Appraisal Experience Explanation, TALCB Form AEE 6A-0 (804) are existing forms that are now being proposed for inclusion with other TALCB forms adopted by reference.

Wayne Thorburn, Commissioner, Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board, has determined that for the first five-year period the section is in effect there will be no fiscal implications for state or local government as a result of enforcing or administering the rule.

Mr. Thorburn also has determined that for each year of the first five years the amendments are in effect, the public benefit anticipated as a result of these changes will facilitate the identification of TALCB forms. The notary requirement removal facilitates the submission of application forms when applying for certification, licensing, approval as an appraiser trainee, and when submitting confirmation of appraisal experience on the Appraisal Experience Affidavit. There will be no effect on small or micro-businesses. There is no effect on individuals who are required to comply with the rule as proposed.

Comments on the proposal may be submitted Wayne Thorburn, Commissioner, Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board, P.O. Box 12188, Austin, Texas 78711-2188.

The amendment is proposed under the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Act, Subchapter D, Board Powers and Duties (Occupations Code, Chapter 1103), which provides the board with authority to adopt rules under §1103.151, Rules Relating to Certification and Licenses.

No other code, article, or statute is affected by this proposal.
