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:
Title 58, Chapter 67, provides for the licensure of physicians/surgeons. Subsection 58-1-106(1)(a) provides that the Division may adopt and enforce rules to administer Title 58. Subsection 58-67-201(3)(a) provides that the Physicians Licensing Board's duties and responsibilities shall be in accordance with Section 58-1-202. Subsection 58-1-202(1)(a) provides that one of the duties of each board is to recommend appropriate rules to the Division director. This rule was enacted to clarify the provisions of Title 58, Chapter 67, with respect to physicians/surgeons.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
Since this rule was last reviewed in March 2011, it has been amended four times. The only written comment received by the Division with respect to this rule was a January 2012 email comment from Hunter Finch in the Governor's Office of Planning and Budget in which he suggested a change to the Division's proposed rule filing. As a result of Mr. Finch's comments, the Division filed a change in proposed rule filing under DAR No. 35389 on 01/05/2012.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
This rule should be continued as it provides a mechanism to inform potential licensees of the requirements for licensure as allowed under statutory authority provided in Title 58, Chapter 67, with respect to physicians/surgeons. The rule should also be continued as it provides information to ensure applicants for licensure are adequately trained and meet minimum licensure requirements and provides licensees with information concerning unprofessional conduct, definitions, and ethical standards relating to the profession.
