Definition of Terms Used Throughout R460
Notice of Proposed Rule
DAR File No.: 40012
Filed: 12/28/2015 10:09:25 AM
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
Some language in this rule repeats, verbatim, what is stated in established law, i.e. the Utah Housing Corporation (UHC) Act so duplicative language is being removed from the rule. Also, Utah Code references need to be updated in connection with changes made in S.B. 67 in the 2015 General Session.
Summary of the rule or change:
A section of the rule that provides a listing of some defined terms in Section 63H-8-103 is being eliminated to reduce any confusion regarding defined terms in the UHC Act or in its rules. Additionally, updated Utah Code references are being added.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Section 63H-8-301
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
The change is purely administrative in that redundant verbiage is being removed and Utah Code references are being updated. Therefore, there will be no fiscal effect on the state budget.
The change is purely administrative in that redundant verbiage is being removed and Utah Code references are being updated. Therefore, there will be no fiscal effect on local government.
The change is purely administrative in that redundant verbiage is being removed and Utah Code references are being updated. Therefore, there will be no fiscal effect on small businesses.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
The change is purely administrative in that redundant verbiage is being removed and Utah Code references are being updated. Therefore, there will be no fiscal effect on any other persons.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Because the changes simply remove redundant language and update Utah Code references, there is no compliance cost for any affected persons.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
The UHC Act clearly provides defined terms in Section 63H-8-103. In an effort to follow the Governor's recommendation to provide clear, concise rules, UHC identified a duplicative section in this rule that is already provided in greater clarity in the Act. There is anticipated to be no fiscal impact on any business as a result of this change.
