59A-11.011: Client Orientation and Preparation for Childbirth
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The Agency proposes to repeal a rule related to birth center standards and licensure.
SUMMARY: The rule outlines what must be included in a client’s orientation and preparation for childbirth when delivering in a birth center. The Agency proposes to repeal this rule as it substantially restates the language in Section 383.311, F.S.
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 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: The Agency proposes to repeal this rule as it substantially restates the language in Section 383.311, F.S.
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.
