Change in Proposed Rule

DAR File No.: 37830
Filed: 10/02/2013 04:28:33 PM


Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:

During the public comment period, the Division of Air Quality received comments pointing out that military contractors also have to meet military technical data orders and that the rule did not clearly exempt military contractors from the requirements of the rule.

Summary of the rule or change:

Subsection R307-350-3(1)(h) is amended to add to the exemption Department of Defense contractors. The compliance schedule for the rule is changed to 01/01/2014. (DAR NOTE: This change in proposed rule has been filed to make additional changes to a proposed amendment that was published in the August 1, 2013, issue of the Utah State Bulletin, on page 24. Underlining in the rule below indicates text that has been added since the publication of the proposed rule mentioned above; strike-out indicates text that has been deleted. You must view the change in proposed rule and the proposed amendment together to understand all of the changes that will be enforceable should the agency make this rule effective.)

State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:

  • Subsection 19-2-104(1)(a)

Anticipated cost or savings to:

the state budget:

Because none of the changes to the rule affect the state, there are no anticipated costs or saving to the state budget.

local governments:

Because none of the changes to the rule affect local government, there are no anticipated costs or savings to local government.

small businesses:

Department of Defense contractors are generally businesses that employ more than 50 persons; therefore, the changes to the rule should not have any affect on the costs or savings to small businesses.

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

As the changes to this rule affect Department of Defense contractors, there are no anticipated costs or savings to persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local government entities.

Compliance costs for affected persons:

There are no added compliance costs added to this rule. In fact, this rulemaking will mitigate potential compliance costs for affected persons, as it adds a new exemption to the rule.

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

This rulemaking will mitigate the fiscal impact of the rule on Department of Defense contractors, as it exempts them from the requirements of the rule.
