At this month’s Accountancy Board meeting, Executive Director Monica Petersen, provided a legislative update, noting that legal advice is being obtained in some areas. The Board approved a rule package to clarify and provide consistency to the Arizona Administrative Code and to comply with the five-year rule review.
