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 35A-3-401 authorizes the Department to provide cash assistance to General Assistance clients. Section 35A-1-104 authorizes the Department of Workforce Services to adopt rules. Subsection 35A-1-104(4) authorizes the Department to establish eligibility standards for its programs.

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 had to restrict the availability of the program due to budget cutbacks over the last five years. The Department received written comments expressing regret that the cuts had to occur. No other comments have been received.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The rule is necessary to determine eligibility for General Assistance, participation requirements and consequences for failure to comply. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
