The Division’s rule filing application — eRules — requires that an agency file the rule text in rich text format (RTF). In the past, an RTF version has not been available on the Division’s web site. Instead, each agency has had to contact the Division to obtain a copy of the current rule in RTF format.
Now, an RTF version of rules is now available online. Rulewriters and citizens can download a compressed RTF archive of all rules within a title from http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/code.htm. With this change, the Division is also discontinuing the practice of providing a compressed archive of rules in WordPerfect format.
PLEASE NOTE: if you have bookmarked a link to a compressed title (e.g., http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/titl_zip/Rxxx.zip), you will need to update your bookmark to point to a new directory (e.g., http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/code_zip/rxxx.zip).
The Division anticipates one additional change. During the first quarter of 2006, rulewriters and citizens will also be able to download individual rule files in RTF format.
