DAR File No.: 39345
Filed: 05/05/2015 02:54:35 PM


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

Under Sections 23-14-18 and 23-14-19, the Wildlife Board is authorized and required to provide rules to regulate the management of big game species. This rule provides the standards and procedures for conservation groups to distribute hunting permits at the annual wildlife expo.

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 supporting or opposing Rule R657-55 were received since 06/01/2010 when the rule was last reviewed.

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

Rule R657-55 provides the requirements, procedures, and standards for conservation groups to issue the 200 hunting permits made available at the wildlife expo. This rule provides the opportunity for residents and nonresidents to visit Utah during the expo for an opportunity to obtain one of the permits. The wildlife expo brings hundreds of thousands of dollars into the state each year. The provisions adopted in this rule are effective in providing the requirements, procedures and standards for managing the wildlife expo permit program. Continuation of this rule is necessary for continued success of this program.
