Rule R305-2

Electronic Meeting

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 37360
Filed: 02/25/2013 10:25:45 AM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 52-4-207 of the Open and Public Meetings Act authorizes public bodies to make a rule governing electronic meetings, and requires them to do so before they may hold an electronic meeting.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has never received a written comment on this rule.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The rule is required under Section 52-4-207 in order for the DEQ boards to hold electronic meetings. Since many members of these boards are from outside of the Salt Lake City area, it is critical that these members be allowed to participate electronically. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
