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:
Section 31A-2-201 gives the commissioner the authority to write rules to implement the provisions of Title 31A. This rule implements the provisions of Subsection 31A-23a-409(2)(b) dealing with the type of depository account title agencies are to use to deposit trust funds. Section R590-212-5 provides requirements of these types of accounts.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
The department has received no written comments regarding this rule in the past five years.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
Without this rule, agencies could go back to the way it was prior to the rule when money was collected from customers and was co-mingled with other agency funds. Co-mingling makes it hard to keep track of the customer's money entrusted to the agency and makes it easy to use the money for uses for which they were not authorized. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
