DISCUSSION REGARDING STENO MASKING

 

Mr. Klein gave the definition of steno masking to the members of the Board. He stated the certified shorthand reporter law does not specifically address this. However there are other states that have similar statutes but include the term steno masking. Ms. Gambee stated when the law was created it was intended to exclude steno masking from reporting. Mr. Klein stated there are other Boards that have done the same. He also added the Board has the option of including this in their statute to regulate the profession in order to protect the public.

 

Mr. Cinnamon asked if the Board has the authority to require depositions be taken by a certified shorthand reporter. Mr. Klein stated there are other statutes other than the one for this Board that address who can take depositions.

 

The Board would like to table this discussion until it has had time to discuss how others in the profession feel about regulating steno masking.
