Editor's Note: Effective 11-1-13, as set forth in House Bill 1467 (2013), “[a]ll powers, duties, responsibilities . . . of the State Board of Health, the State Department of Health, and the State Commissioner of Health relating exclusively to the regulation of Licensed Behavioral Practioners . . . are hereby transferred and shall be placed under the authority of the State Board of Behavioral Health Licensure” [HB 1467 (2013), § 3(A)]. The following provisions in HB 1467 address the disposition of related rules:
      • Section 3 (not to be codified in the Oklahoma Statutes) provides that “[u]pon the effective date of this act, all administrative rules promulgated by the State Board of Health relating to the Licensed Behavioral Practioners Act . . . shall be transferred to and become a part of the administrative rules of the State Board of Behavioral Health Licensure” [HB 1467 (2013), § 3(F)]. HB 1467 also directed the Office of Administrative Rules to place the transferred rules under the Administrative Code section of the State Board of Behavioral Health Licensure [see Editor’s Notice published at 32 Ok Reg 108]. Therefore, on 11-1-13, the rules in Chapter 403 of the Department of Health’s Title 310 [OAC 310:403] were transferred to this new Chapter 21 of the State Board of Behavioral Health Licensure’s Title 86 [OAC 86:21].
             For text of rules that were effective prior to the transfer of these rules on 11-1-13, see Chapter 403 of the Department of Health's Title 310 [OAC 310:403], as published in the 2011 Edition.
      • Section 28 (amending 59 O.S., § 1934) directs the State Board of Behavioral Health Licensure to “[p]rescribe, adopt and promulgate rules to implement and enforce the provisions of the Licensed Behavioral Practitioner Act, including the adoption of the State Department of Health rules by reference; [a]dopt and establish rules of professional conduct; and [s]et license and examination fees as required by the Licensed Behavioral Practitioner Act” [HB 1467 (2013), § 28(A)]. Although the State Board of Behavioral Health Licensure did not "adopt the State Department of Health rules by reference," the Board did adopt rules in a new Chapter 20 of Title 86, first by emergency action effective 4-23-14 and later by permanent action effective 9-11-15.
             For emergency rules related to Licensed Behavioral Practitioners that were promulgated by the State Board of Behavioral Licensure pursuant to HB 1467 (2013), § 28, and were effective from 4-23-15 through 9-10-15, see 32 Ok Reg 175.
             For permanent rules related to Licensed Behavioral Practitioners that were promulgated by the State Board of Behavioral Licensure to supersede the emergency rules, effective 9-11-15, see Chapter 20 of OAC Title 86.
