that this document, as furnished in the Board folders, now becomes the
latest revision proposal to the rules and regulations. This includes the
procedural and administrative changes the staff requested permission to
make at the last meeting. He further stated that members of the Engineer-
ing Laboratories Forum and the Well Drilling Advisory Committee, which is
comprised of four representatives of the well drilling profession and one
of the engineering profession, met in the District headquarters on Decem-
ber 2nd and went over the proposed changes. At that time the members of
the engineering testing laboratories felt they would like to have another
month to study these proposed changes. Although the majority of the Well
Drilling Advisory Committee was in favor of the changes as presented, it
requested that the Governing Board be asked for another month's extension
in order to allow the engineering testing industry time to present further
comments on the rules. Mr. lTwachtmann stated that the staff wished to
meet its deadline of today in presenting these revised changes as they
believe them to be acceptable, but also present this request from the Well
Drilling Advisory Commrittee for another month's delay to allow the engi-
neering testing industry to have more time to study the document. He said
that if both portions of the industry are given copies of the rule changes
recommended by the staff, it should make the public hearing less lengthy.

Board, that the matter would be delayed until the January meeting as re-
quested by the committee.
Chairman McAteer asked all Board members to take the staff's draft of pro-

testing industry pertaining to the proposed changes be mailed to the
Board members before the next Board meeting.
