Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:

The purpose of this filing is now to repeal the Professional Employer Organization Registration Act Rule which the Division no longer has statutory authority to use. (DAR NOTE: H.B. 159 (2008) is found at Chapter 318, Laws of Utah 2008, and was effective 05/05/2008.)
