Rule No.: RULE TITLE
1B-30.002: Style and Form for Filing Rules; Certification Accompanying Materials
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose of the revision is to clarify that no rule should be filed for adoption unless requirements of Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, and other applicable provisions have been certified as satisfied including legislative ratification if required by law. This revision is to conform to provisions in existing law that require certain agencies who propose new rules or revise existing rules that have an economic impact on small businesses to seek legislative ratification by the Florida Legislature prior to the new rule or revisions becoming effective. The Florida Legislature intended during its November 2010 special session to override the veto of SB 1565 (2010). This bill amends Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, to impose and expand the requirement for legislative ratification to any proposed new rule or revision with economic impact on small businesses as may be proposed by any agency.
SUBJECT AREA TO BE ADDRESSED: Clarification of certification form regarding legislative ratification of agency rules.
