H.B. 109 (2015), Expungement of Administrative Action, creates a general grant of rulemaking authority.   Any agency empowered to take disciplinary action against a person would need to establish a rule to govern the administrative expungement process. The bill amends the Utah Administrative Procedures Act and establishes a process for administrative expungements that “prevent public access, including through a website or other electronic means, to agency records regarding the agency’s disciplinary action against an eligible petitioner.”  At lines 502 through 512, the bill provides that an agency establish a form by rule for applications for an administrative expungement.
