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:
The Utah Department of Health is required to establish, by rule, a formula for allocating funds by contract to local health departments. This rule is established under the authority of Section 26A-1-116.
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 comments have been received since the last five-year review.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
This rule establishes the procedures and funding parameters that will be utilized when allocating funds to each local health department. This rule also has established a baseline amount for each local health department, voting requirements, as well as additional factors to be considered. By having a written requirement, funding can be distributed as equitably as possible. The overall amount to be distributed to the local health departments is established by the Utah State Legislature each year during the annual session, as part of the Utah Department of Health budget. The funding formula is then used to make the individual calculations. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
