APPROVAL OF MINUTES
Review of the minutes will be deferred until the next meeting of the Commission.
The pending rule which includes fee increases was approved by both the House and the Senate. Mr. Katsilometes asked whether he had any discretion on the fees for the combatants or if he was required to charge the fees in the rule once it becomes effective. It was determined that the Commissioner has no authority to change fees set in rule.
ATC-2009-4 Ms. Uranga presented the memorandum to Commissioner Katsilometes and he accepted the recommendation of the hearing office and authorized closure.
Ms. Peel presented the investigative report to the Commission.

I-ATC-2012-3 Commissioner Katsilometes accepted the recommendation and authorized closure. Commissioner Katsilometes asked whether the tribe could continue holding events without state sanctioning. Mr. Ellsworth suggested that if the tribe requests sanctioning, there should be a memorandum of understanding between them and the Commission. Commissioner Katsilometes will discuss the Commission’s authority on the reservation with Deputy Commissioner James Stoll.
Ms. Peel discussed a request from the collection agency that handles past due disciplinary accounts. The collection agency asked if the Commission would give the Bureau the authority to negotiate a settlement on any past due balances.
Commissioner Katsilometes granted the Bureau the authority to allow the collection agency to negotiate settlement of a collections case to a minimum amount, and any potential settlement less than that amount of the original debt would be brought to the Commissioner for review.
