33-601.716: Visiting Record Management
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose and effect of the proposed rulemaking is to update terminology and to transfer via rulemaking Form DC6-111C from Rule 33-601.737, F.A.C., to this rule.
SUMMARY: The terminology of the rule is updated to coordinate with other visiting rules, and Form DC6-111C is being moved to this rule from Rule 33-601.737, F.A.C.
SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS AND LEGISLATIVE RATIFICATION: The agency has determined that this rule will not have an adverse impact on small business and is not likely to directly or indirectly increase regulatory costs by more than $200,000 within one year of taking effect. A SERC has not been prepared by the agency. Based on the fact that the rule is only being amended to incorporate a form in a different location, the change will not have an impact on small business or the private sector and the rule therefore is not expected to require legislative ratification.
Any person who wishes to provide information regarding a statement of estimated regulatory costs, or provide a proposal for a lower cost regulatory alternative must do so in writing within 21 days of this notice.
RULEMAKING AUTHORITY: 944.09 FS.
LAW IMPLEMENTED: 20.315, 944.09, 944.23 FS.
IF REQUESTED WITHIN 21 DAYS OF THE DATE OF THIS NOTICE, A HEARING WILL BE SCHEDULED AND ANNOUNCED IN THE FAW.
