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

The statutory provision that lies within Subsection 53-2a-306 (1)(b) states that the Utah Division of Emergency Management shall make rules in accordance with Title 63G, Chapter 3, Utah Administrative Rulemaking Act, to prepare and coordinate a process and plan so that the Division may assist political subdivisions that are acting as agents of the state in mobilizing or demobilizing available assets in response to an intrastate or interstate disaster as provided in Title 53, Chapter 2a, Part 4, Emergency Management Assistance Compact.

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 were no official comments received by the division that supported or opposed the Statewide Mutual Aid Act Activation Rule R704-2.

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

The Statewide Mutual Aid Act Activation, Rule R704-2, is the mechanism through which resources can be deemed agents of the state, deployed and authorized to render aid intrastate and interstate during a declared emergency or disaster, by the requesting jurisdiction. In addition, the rule is required under Subsection 53-2a-306(1)(b). Therefore, this rule should be continued.
