NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Title 54, Chapter 13, specifically charges the Commission with responsibility to establish safety standards and practices for intrastate pipeline transportation and requires the Commission to promulgate/adopt rules to discharge that responsibility.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
Over the past five years, the only comments received have been from the Utah Division of Public Utilities, Department of Commerce, requesting that the state rule incorporation of and references to federal rules be updated as the federal rules (Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)) have changed. As the relevant federal CFRs have changed, the Commission has amended the state rule in 2003 and 2004.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
Utah statutory provisions continue to require the Commission to establish safety standards and regulate the operation of intrastate pipelines to ensure they are used in a safe and efficient manner, consistent with the public interest. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
