DAR File No.: 34957
Filed: 06/21/2011 11:47:24 AM
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
Creation of rule in response to amendments made to Title 4, Chapter 40, that were enacted by H.B. 495, Animal Control Modification, from the 2011 General Session.
Summary of the rule or change:
This rule provides the requirements and procedures for community spay and neuter grants established by Title 4, Chapter 40, and defines what constitutes a person having low income for purposes of that statute.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Subsection 4-40-102(5)(c)
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
There will be a cost to administer the program that will have to be absorbed by the existing budget.
For city or county animal services that apply for the grants, they may see a lower operational budget if they currently provide for low cost spay and neuter procedures.
This may give more business to veterinarians that have small animal practices and provide the service.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
The low income individual may be able to receive a cost reduction if they have an animal that has a spay or neuter procedure, 501(c)(3) organizations may be able to reduce their costs if they are providing this service to low income individuals at this time.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Administrative costs are to be borne by the Department and all organizations that receive grants.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
The changes to the statute made by the last legislature will allow more organizations to apply for the grant funds and more veterinary practitioners will be encouraged to provide these services.
Leonard Blackham, Commissioner
