emergency_rules EmR1102 3.   EmR1102 — Rule adopted creating Chapters RL 200 to 202, relating to governing professional conduct of individuals licensed as sign language interpreters, and for the treatment of state resident licensure exemption requests.
Finding of Emergency
2009 Wisconsin Act 360 created laws regulating the practice of sign language interpreting, and became effective on December 1, 2010. Under the act, codified at s. 440.032, Stats., individuals practicing as sign language interpreters must now be licensed by the department, and must comply with a code of professional conduct to be promulgated by the department. The new law also provides for exemptions from the licensure requirement under certain circumstances, and requires the council to promulgate rules establishing the criteria and procedures for granting state resident exemptions. As s. 440.032, Stats., is already in effect, an emergency rule is necessary to implement the law pending promulgation of a similar permanent rule.

Barbering and Cosmetology Examining Board
emergency_rules EmR1047 EmR1047 — Rule adopted to revise Chapters BC 9 and 11, relating to late renewal and continuing education.
Finding of Emergency
The rule as currently promulgated fails to adequately protect the public to the extent that several provisions are underdeveloped, ambiguous or silent. As a result, inconsistent interpretations and contradictory information has led to significant confusion within the profession. Given that the rules require licensees to comply by March 31, 2011, the errors and omissions need to be addressed immediately so licensees can receive adequate training to provide safe and competent services to the public, and comply with the requirements for renewal of a license.

Veterinary Examining Board
emergency_rules EmR1103 EmR1103 — Rule adopted to revise sections VE 2.01 (2), 3.03 (intro) and (5), relating to the requirements for the initial licensure of veterinarians, specifically, the procedures for, and the types of examinations required.
Finding of Emergency
As currently written, the veterinary examining board rules regarding licensure candidates' deadlines for submission of applications to take the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) do not align with the deadlines established by the National Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners (NBVME). The rules thus also conflict with the deadlines defined in the board's NBVME NAVLE agreement. The rules state that a candidate shall file a completed NAVLE application with the board at least 60 days prior to the date of the scheduled examination. However, NAVLE's deadlines require submission of applications approximately 115 days ahead of the examination date. This inconsistency between the rules and NAVLE's deadlines will likely cause significant confusion for licensure candidates. At worst, it could preclude a candidate from taking the particular NAVLE he or she applies for due to missing the application deadline. In addition, recently-passed legislation now allows foreign veterinary graduates to show evidence of successful completion of the Program for the Assessment of Veterinary Education Equivalence (PAVE) as an alternative to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AMVA) Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinary Graduates Certification (ECFVGC) program. The board adopts this emergency rule effecting the necessary changes pending the promulgation of a similar permanent rule.
