Editor's Note: Publication Error on the Filing for Rule R392-302, DAR No. 33873, in the August 15, 2010, Bulletin
The Department of Health and the Division of Administrative Rules have discovered an error in the text of Rule R392-302, DAR No. 33873, published in the PDF version of the August 15, 2010, issue of the Utah State Bulletin.
At Subsection R392-302-22(6), Table 2, markup should have appeared showing additions and deletions in the table. This markup, while present in the text filed by the Department of Health, does not appear in the final PDF version published at the Division's web site. However, the markup correctly appears in the HTML version of the published rule; see: http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/bulletin/2010/20100815/33873.htm
The correct text is reproduced below. Please note that the identification of this error impinges in no way on the Department of Health's ability to make this proposed amendment effective as planned. The Division regrets any inconvenience caused by this error.
