General Provisions

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 38303
Filed: 02/17/2014 10:51:40 AM

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION

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

This rule articulates the purpose and intent of the Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission Act and supplements statutory definitions to clarify the Act. It is authorized by Subsection 78A-12-203(7), which authorizes the commission to make rules to administer the evaluation mandated by law. Without an articulated purpose and relevant definitions, the rules for administering the evaluation would make no sense.

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

No written comments have been received.

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

Articulating the purpose and intent of the Act and providing clearly-understood definitions is fundamental to understanding both the statutory mandates and the other administrative rules that have been promulgated. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
