Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 38861
Filed: 09/12/2014 10:01:56 AM


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

Subsection 72-6-107.5(6) requires the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) to adopt administrative rules setting out: 1) requirements and procedure for a contractor to demonstrate to UDOT compliance with the statutory requirement of offering health care insurance coverage for contractor employees; 2) penalties that may be imposed for violation of the section; and 3) a website with the benchmark for qualified health insurance coverage.

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:

The rule provides contractors with the means of compliance with this ongoing statutory requirement and enables the provision to be enforced with contractors and consultants. Therefore, this rule should be continued. Rule R916-5 is in need of updating and some rewriting, so UDOT anticipates that it will seek amendments to the rule in the near future.
