H.B. 209, Administrative Rules – Impact on Small Businesses, has been introduced. The bill amends the Title 63, Chapter 46a, Utah Administrative Rulemaking Act in two ways. It defines “small businesses”. It also modifies Section 63-46a-4, requiring an agency to provide anticipated cost or savings to small businesses and business in general. Contrary to the description provided in the bill’s “Highlighted Provisions,” this second change will affect proposed rules (new, amended, repealed, and repealed and reenacted), changes in proposed rules, and emergency rules.
