NEW MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPY RULES – EFFECTIVE MARCH 31, 2013
The Texas State Board of Examiners of Marriage and Family Therapists (board) has adopted rule changes. Complete information on the adopted rules is available in the March 22, 2013, version of the Texas Register (38 TexReg 1982), which is available on the Texas Secretary of State’s website at: http://www.sos.state.tx.us/texreg/index.shtml. The portions of the Texas Register (pp. 1982-1994), which reference only the board’s rule changes, are also available here as a pdf.
The rule changes became effective on March 31, 2013, 20 days after filing on March 11, 2013. The board’s current rules are always available and up-to-date on the Texas Secretary of State’s website for the Texas Administrative Code at http://www.sos.state.tx.us/tac/index.shtml. The board’s rules are located in Title 22 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 801.
As a courtesy to the public, the board also creates a reformatted version of the rules, which is available as a word document and as a pdf document, which may be more easily accessed by some than are the rules available on the Texas Secretary of State’s website. The new, reformatted version of the board’s rules is available below. Whenever a conflict exists between the board’s reformatted version of the law or rules and those on the Texas Secretary of State’s website, the version on the Texas Secretary of State’s website is the correct version.
