     (2)  Is in compliance with all the requirements of chapter 431.

     (c)  When the commissioner issues or extends a license, the commissioner shall:

     (1)  Determine the extension date, which is that date prior to which the license must be extended; and

     (2)  Notify the licensee in writing of the extension date.

The extension date shall be any date not less than one year and not more than three years after the date of the issue or the last extension of the license. [L 1987, c 347, pt of §2; am L 1999, c 163, §4; am L 2002, c 155, §23; am L 2006, c 154, §18; am L 2021, c 111, §6]
