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:
Section 34A-1-104 authorizes the Labor Commission to conduct adjudicative proceedings to resolve workers' compensation and occupational disease claims. Sections 34A-1-104 and 34A-2-802 also authorize the Commission to adopt rules to carry out those adjudicative functions.
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 have been received during the last five-year review period.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
As part of the Commission's continuing responsibility to administer a system for adjudication of workers' compensation and occupational disease claims, it is necessary for the Commission to establish procedures for pleadings and discovery, standards for use and compensation of medical panels, and standards for evaluating settlement agreements. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
