PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose of the proposed rule revisions is to revise the definitions of General and Individual Environmental Resource Permits to accurately reflect that District staff is no longer delegated the authority to deny General Environmental Resource Permit applications.
SUMMARY: The proposed rule amendments will remove language in the definition of General Environmental Resource Permits that indicates District staff is responsible for denying applications for such permits.
SUMMARY OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS: A Statement of Estimated Regulatory Cost is not being prepared based on the District’s determination that the proposed revisions to Rule 40D-1.607, F.A.C., will not result in a substantial increase in the costs to affected parties and there will not be significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment or productivity.
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.
