Where Are the New Rules?

According to the LPC board website November 19, 2015 https://www.dshs.state.tx.us/counselor/lpc_rules/

“The proposed rules posted in the May 15, 2015 issue of the Texas Register have been withdrawn by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors for further review and editing. The notice of withdrawal of the proposed rules will be published in the July 3, 2015 issue of the Texas Register.”

So where are the new rules?

When board members visited the Texas Counseling Association Professional Growth Conference November 4-6 2015 in Corpus Christi, Texas this was a very popular question. With so many things from distance counseling to continuing education for board members up for grabs, counselors wanted to know when the rules would be available again for discussion and input. Like any good bureaucracy, it might take some time, so watch the Texas LPC website and stay connected to your professional organizations like the Texas Counseling Association for the most up-to date information.
