Filed: 04/01/2009, 08:24
Received by: NL
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
This rule also clarifies the number of days for notice of simultaneous filings for mineral lands being auctioned.
Summary of the rule or change:
The rule change modifies the term "working days" to "business days" to avoid confusion for those businesses that are not on the state's four-ten initiative for workdays.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
Section 65A-6-2 and Subsection 65A-6-4(3)
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
The rule amendment has no impact to state budget. The time period for submitting a bid on mineral lease lands remains the same.
Local governments do no bid on mineral lease lands and therefore has no impact to local government.
small businesses and persons other than businesses:
Since the time frame for filing on mineral lease lands remains unchanged, the rule change should have no impact on small businesses.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Since the time frame for filing on mineral lease lands remain unchanged, the rule change should have no impact on affected persons.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
Since this rule clarifies the time period of bidding on mineral leases because of changes in the state's work week it has no affect on businesses. They will continue to have the same amount of time to bid on mineral leases. Michael R. Styler, Executive Director
