Rule R277-412

State Capitol Visit Program

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 43194
Filed: 09/13/2018 02:07:26 PM


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

This rule is authorized by Utah Constitution Article X, Section 3, which vests general control and supervision of public education in the Board of Education (Board), by Subsection 53F-2-509(3), which requires the Board to make rules establishing procedures for applying for and awarding grants and specifying how grant money shall be allocated among school districts and charter schools, and Subsection 53E-3-401(4), which allows the Board to make rules in accordance with its responsibilities.

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 were received.

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

In the 2018 General Session, the Legislature took the appropriation given to the Board for Capitol field trips and moved the line item of funding over to the Capitol Preservation Board. However, the statute governing the field trip program, Section 53F-2-509, was inadvertently left in the Utah Code without amendments reassigning the program to the Capitol Preservation Board. Rule R277-412 is the rule created by the Board to govern the funding for the field trips and is required by Section 53F-2-509. This rule is also up for its five-year review continuation. Although, Utah State Board of Education (USBE) no longer has the funding for the field trips within its budget, the Utah Code still requires a rule as if it did. So, to be compliant with the statute, USBE staff proposes the Board continue this rule in its current form with the intent to repeal or amend the rule as soon as the statute governing the field trips can be moved to the Capitol Preservation Board.
