PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The Agency proposes to repeal a rule related to hospital standards and licensure.
SUMMARY: The rule allows special hospitals to apply for an exception to rules and standards relating to operational functions, design and construction of special hospitals. The Agency proposes to repeal this rule based upon no statutory mandate for its purpose.
SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS AND LEGISLATIVE RATIFICATION:
The Agency has determined that this will not have an adverse impact on small business or likely increase directly or indirectly regulatory costs in excess of $200,000 in the aggregate within one year after the implementation of the rule. A SERC has not been prepared by the agency.
The agency has determined that there is no statutory authority for this rule and that repeal 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.
The Agency has determined that the proposed rule is not expected to require legislative ratification based on the statement of estimated regulatory costs or if no SERC is required, the information expressly relied upon and described herein: Statutory authority does not exist for this rule.
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.
