The Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners has posted proposed rule changes that include the proposed fees for licensure of veterinary technicians to their website. The proposed fees for licensure of veterinary technicians are: application for a new license: $70, Regular license renewal fee: $46 and renewal of an inactive license: $23.
The comment period for these proposed changes is open through Oct. 20, 2013
This bill gives the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners the power to license veterinary technicians. The complete text of the bill can be found here: SB1312 The enrolled version is the bill as it was signed into law.
TARVT hosted a live chat through VSPN on June 23rd, 2013 to help answer questions about what changes this Bill will have on veterinary hospital staff. You can find the Q&A from that chat here: Licensure chat
If you have questions that weren’t answered during the chat, you may post them to https://www.facebook.com or to the TARVT message board on vspn.org
