The purpose of this amendment is to remove an obsolete reference to criminal penalties for violating a rule that is no longer supported by statutory delegation of this authority by the Legislature, See H.B. 32, 2009 General Session. (DAR NOTE: H.B. 32 (2009) is found at Chapter 347, Laws of Utah 2009, and was effective 05/12/2009.)

persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:

In the state fiscal year 2009, no businesses were assessed a civil money penalty for violation of this rule. It is possible but not likely with this rule change that a business could be assessed a $10,000 civil money penalty.

Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:

Civil money penalties are an important tool to encourage voluntary compliance with licensing standards. Due process protections are in place. The overall fiscal impact is small and may be avoided by following licensing requirements.
