  1. The Commission’s security investigator is retiring and will be replaced by the use of State Troopers until further notice.
  2. Severe reductions are occurring in the agency’s budget for FY 2009 and FY 2010 which will cause a large deficit for the Commission’s operation. Discussion was held about maintaining efficient court operations, shortage of staff due to retirements, accommodating claimants in waiting times for hearings, and traveling distance to hearings. The possibility of an additional satellite court operation was also discussed.
  3. The 2009 Official Practitioner Fee Schedule will be released on July 15, 2009.
