2014 Updated Rules Report

61J2-24.005 Revocation, repealed effective December 21, 2014. A case involving the Pharmacy Board has led the FRECís legal counsel to recommend repealing Rule 61J2-24.005. The case law indicates that Professional Boards do not have the authority to establish the conditions for revocation. Revocation is in statute. Therefore, the Commission repealed Rule 24.005 which set forth conditions under which licensees who had been revoked could not reapply for licensure for a period of five years. After the repeal of Rule 61J2-24.005, F.A.C. becomes effective, December 21, 2014, all instances of revocation of a real estate license (or permit) will be permanent.

61J2-20.054 Public Comment, effective August 3, 2014. This rule establishes the parameters for a member of the public to make comments during a FREC meeting.

61J2-1.011 License Fees and Examination Fees, effective June 29, 2014. This rule reduced the real estate license fees.

Effective August 11, 2014 the Division of Real Estate has an active mutual recognition agreement with the State of Illinois.
