A regular quarterly meeting of the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) was held August 17,2017, in Austin.  The Board approved proposed amendments to the following rules:

  • Rule 72.9 - The proposed rule amendment reflects 2017 Sunset Commission recommendation to remove limitation on the number of times an applicant is allowed to take the jurisprudence exam, in order to achieve a passing score.

  • Chapter 73 - Chapter 73 is proposed for repeal to reflect implementation of 2017 Sunset legislation, SB 304, effective September 1, 2017, which ceases the Board’s statutory authority over registering chiropractic facilities.

  • Rule 75.2 - The proposed rule amendment reflects 2017 Sunset Commission recommendation to change the current annual license renewal period to a two-year cycle, which reflects other similar health professional licensing agencies.

  • Rule 75.4 - The proposed rule amendment reflects 2017 Sunset Commission recommendation to implement a biennial licensing period in accordance with other similar healthcare professional licensing agencies.

The proposed amendments will be posted to theTexasRegister.com on or before September 29, 2017, for a 30-day comment period.
