For Board Determination:

 

I-PHT-2011-1  Another state notified IBOL that disciplinary action had been taken against R.  IBOL records show that R’s license expired in 2008 and has not been renewed.  On 7/20/10 the other state entered a Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law and Decree of Censure against R for “failure to timely respond to a notice of audit of continuing competence activities” and noted that “this Decree of Censure may be considered by the Board in determining appropriate sanctions in the event a subsequent violation occurs.”  IBOL recommends that the Board authorize closure with a warning letter to R advising him that the Idaho Board may taken action against his renewal rights if he has further disciplinary action taken by the other state.
