R641-105-100. Requests for Agency Action (Petitions).

All Requests for Agency Action filed by the 10th day of each calendar month may be considered by the Board for inclusion in the schedule of matters to be heard at its regularly scheduled meeting during the following calendar month. At the time the request is filed, petitioner will also file any motions, affidavits, briefs, or memoranda intended to be offered by petitioner in support of said petition or motion. Petitioner will file with the petition a list of the names and last known addresses of all persons required by statute to be served or whose legally protected interest may be affected thereby. This rule will apply to all matters initiated by the Board on its own motion as well as to statements, briefs, or memoranda in support thereof prepared by the Division or by the Staff. Any petition or other materials filed after the 10th day of any calendar month may be considered by the Board at its regularly scheduled meeting during the following month only upon separate motion of petitioner made at or before the hearing for good cause shown.

R641-105-200. Responses.

All responses to petitions, responses to motions by petitioner, and motions by respondent, together with all affidavits, briefs, or memoranda in support thereof, filed by the 10th day of the month or two weeks before the scheduled hearing, whichever is earlier, in the month in which the hearing on the matter is scheduled (the "Response Date") may be considered by the Board at its regularly scheduled meeting during that month. This rule will apply to all statements, briefs, or memoranda prepared by the Division or by the Staff in response to any petition or motion by petitioner. Any responses or other materials filed after the Response Date may be considered at the Board's regularly scheduled meeting for that month only upon separate motion of respondent made at or before the hearing for good cause shown.

R641-105-300. Motions.

All motions or responses to motions available to a petitioner or respondent at the time his or her Request for Agency Action or response is filed will be filed and served with the petition or response as provided in R641-105-100 and R641-105-200. Subsequent written motions, other than motions for exceptions to the filing requirements of these rules, must be filed by the time the response is due under R641-105-200. Oral responses and written responses to motions may be presented or filed at or before the hearing. Oral motions and responses to oral motions may be presented at the hearing.

R641-105-500. Exhibits.

Any exhibits intended to be offered by petitioners will be filed at least thirty days prior to the date of the hearing for which the exhibits are intended. Respondents and intervenors will supply exhibits with their respective pleadings. Any exhibits intended to be offered by the parties in rebuttal of evidence presented at the hearing will be presented at the hearing. The Board, on its own motion, may order the continuance of any proceeding until the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board in order to allow adequate time for the Staff to evaluate any evidence presented during the hearing.

R641-105-600. Place of Filing.

An original and 14 copies of all pleadings, affidavits, briefs, memoranda and exhibits will be filed with the secretary of the Board. The Board may direct any party to provide additional copies as needed.

The Chairman or designated Acting Chairman of the Board may issue temporary rulings on procedural motions that arise between Board hearings dates. These rulings will be reviewed and decided upon by the Board at its next regularly scheduled meeting.

In computing any period of time prescribed or allowed by these rules, or by the Board, the day of the act, event, or default from which the designated period of time begins to run will not be included. The last day of the period so computed will be included, unless it is a Saturday, a Sunday, or a legal holiday, in which event the period runs until the end of the next day which is not a Saturday, a Sunday, or a legal holiday. When the period of time prescribed or allowed is less than seven days, intervening Saturdays, Sundays, or legal holidays will be excluded in the computation.
