Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:

Therefore, the Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) determines that this amendment does not create a cost or savings impact to the state budget or DWR's budget since the changes will not increase workload and can be carried out with existing budget.
Since this amendment has a minimal impact on individual hunters and no impact on the local governments, DWR finds that this filing does not create any direct cost or savings impact to local governments. Nor are local governments indirectly impacted because the rule does not create a situation requiring services from local governments.
This amendment only adds a rest area designation to a waterfowl management area and therefore, does not have the potential to generate a cost or savings impact to small businesses.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
This amendment only adds a rest area designation to a waterfowl management area and therefore, does not have the potential to generate a cost or savings impact to sportsmen or the other persons.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
DWR determines that this amendment will not create additional costs for those who participate in wildlife-related activities in Utah because this amendment only adds a rest area designation to a waterfowl management area.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
The amendments to this rule do not create an impact on businesses.
