Carter Lawrence to Oversee Regulatory Boards, Including TREC

The Regulatory Boards Division includes the Tennessee Real Estate Commission but also includes other boards which licenses and regulates several hundred thousand Tennesseans in their professions and businesses through 28 regulatory programs.

Some programs have boards and commissions comprised of private citizens, while others register professionals or are regulated administratively through the Commissioner. These entities are empowered to take disciplinary action – including revocation of licenses and assignment of civil penalties – against license-holders found guilty of violating laws governing their professions.  The division was created by statute in 1959 and has a separate investigations unit.
