PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The Board proposes the rule amendment to clarify which entities may file consolidated or combined financial statements.
SUMMARY: To clarify which entities may file consolidated or combined financial statements.
SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS: No Statement of Estimated Regulatory Cost was prepared. The Board has determined that the proposed rule will not have an adverse impact on small business, nor will the proposed rule likely increase directly or indirectly regulatory costs, including transactional costs, in excess of $200,000 in the aggregate within one year or $1 million in the aggregate within 5 years after implementation of the rule. Therefore, it has been determined that the rule does not meet the threshold for ratification by the Legislature.
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.
