This Week at Rules – August 5, 2020

Brody Mangum Public News

Hello rule readers!

It’s been a busy last couple of weeks here at the Office of Administrative Rules. We’ve been focused on getting our content out more frequently and directly to you, and we’ve got some exciting updates to share.

Front Page Focus

You might have noticed that the front page looks a little different than it used to. We’ll talk about that more in a bit, but we’re excited to share one thing right now – the Front Page Focus. We’ve been wanting to make the rules you’re interested in easier to access. One way to do this is to spotlight rules that are frequently visited, are interesting in different ways, or are relevant to a specific situation. You’ll see these rules right on the front page. We’ll also make sure to change them weekly so that it’s always up-to-date and matches what you’re looking for.

This week, we’re looking at two frequently visited rules and an important resource. R162-2f: Real Estate Licensing and Practices Rules establishes and covers rules about real estate licensing and real estate actions. R477-8: Working Conditions looks at the specific working conditions, including workplace standards and conduct, for employees of the State of Utah under the executive department (not elsewhere).

Finally, we’ve got a quick link to access the Utah Administrative Code Codification Segue. This is a fantastic resource to see rules that have been issued but not yet added to our state’s Administrative Code. For rules that are in the Code, a link is provided in the page as well.

New Home Page

We redesigned our home page!

Again, making sure that our rules are easy to access and read is extremely important to us, and our new home page has helped us do this. The most visited resources, like our Executive Documents page, the Utah State Bulletin page, and the Utah Administrative Code page, are now much more prominent. With sections like our Front Page Focus, we can also better share important info.
