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

Section 63G-3-201 requires (1) Each agency shall: (a) maintain a current version of its rules; and (b) make it available to the public for inspection during its regular business hours. (2) In addition to other rulemaking required by law, each agency shall make rules when agency action: (a) authorizes, requires, or prohibits an action; (b) provides or prohibits a material benefit; (c) applies to a class of persons or another agency; and (d) is explicitly or implicitly authorized by statute. Subsection 63H-6-103(5) Utah State Fair Corporation shall: (vi) hold an annual exhibition that: (A) is called the state fair or a similar name; (B) includes expositions of livestock, poultry, agricultural, domestic science, horticultural, floricultural, mineral, and industrial products, manufactured articles, and domestic animals that, in the corporation's opinion will best stimulate agricultural, industrial, artistic, and educational pursuits and the sharing of talents among the people of Utah; (C) includes the award of premiums for the best specimens of the exhibited articles and animals; (D) permits competition by livestock exhibited by citizens of other states and territories of the United States; and (E) is arranged according to plans approved by the board; (vii) fix the conditions of entry to the exposition described in Subsection (5)(a)(vi); and (viii) publish a list of premiums that will be awarded at the exhibition described in Subsection (5)(a)(vi) for the best specimens of exhibited articles and animals. This requires that the Corporation set rules and guidelines for exhibitors, renters and the general public.

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

There is no record of written comments having been received.

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

There are over 120 different events, other than the State Fair, held at the Fairpark each year. Attendance by the general public at these events requires enforceable basic rules. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
