The purpose of the repeal is to eliminate the “lookback period” currently found in §535.93, which currently allows a license holder to renew after the expiration date of their license without any lapse in active licensure, as long as certain certifications are made. With this repeal and the additional changes in 22 TAC Chapter 535, a license holder who late renews (meaning no later than 6 months after the expiration date) would automatically renew on inactive status. In order to mirror the format of rule 22 TAC §535.216 (which relates to inspectors), the relevant language of §535.93 has been added to 22 TAC §535.91. As a result, §535.93 is no longer necessary.
