10 CSR 23-1.075 Disciplinary Actions and Appeals Procedures
House Bill 28 – Missouri Well Construction Rules (10 CSR 23-1.075)
The 2013 legislative session saw the passing of House Bill 28, which amended many of the laws relating to the state’s natural resources, including the Water Well Driller’s Act. Specifically, changes to Section 256.630, RSMo rendered the Missouri Well Construction Rule on Disciplinary Action and Appeals (10 CSR 23-1.075), invalid.
Section 621.250 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri (RSMo) was amended to include the Water Well Driller’s Act, Chapter 256.600 – 256.640. This law now states, “All authority to hear contested case administrative appeals granted in chapters … 256 … shall be transferred to the administrative hearing commission ... For appeals pursuant to … chapter 256 … the administrative hearing commission shall render a final decision rather than a recommended decision.”
Simply put, all appeals will now be heard by the Administrative Hearing Commission, whose decision will be final. Staff have begun a new rulemaking to address these changes. In the interim, the procedure to file an appeal with the Commission may be found online at moga.mo.gov/statutes/C600-699/6210000250.htm (see Section 621.250).
Questions regarding this change should be directed to Sheri Fry at 573-368-2115.
This draft rulemaking will be presented to the Well Installation Board for their approval at the November 1, 2013, meeting in Rolla. The draft language reflects HB 28 which was passed during the last legislative session.
