the state budget:

The Utah Department of Health (UDOH) determines enactment of the amended version will not create any cost or savings impact to the state budget or UDOH's budget since the change will not increase workload and can be carried out with the existing budget.

local governments:

This rule change is not expected to have any fiscal impact on local governments revenues or expenditures because they are not directly affected by this rule; nor are local governments indirectly impacted because thid rule does not create a situation requiring services from local governments.

small businesses:

This rule change is not expected to have any fiscal impact on small businesses' revenues or expenditures because all potentially impacted businesses have more than 50 employees. As a result, this rule will have no effect on small business budgets for costs or savings.

persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:

This rule change is not expected to have any fiscal impact on other individuals´┐Ż revenues or expenditures because this change only clarifies a prior expectation.

Compliance costs for affected persons:

Affected persons are as follows: state government and non-small businesses (APCD suppliers). However, no compliance costs are anticipated as a result of this technical change in Rule R428-1.

Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:

After conducting a thorough analysis, it was determined that this proposed change will not result in a fiscal impact to businesses.
