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:

Statute authorizes the State Parks Board to make rules relating to boating safety equipment in Subsection 73-18-8(6): "The board may: (a) require additional safety equipment by rule; and (b) adopt rules conforming with the requirements of this section which govern specifications for and the use of safety equipment."

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No written comments in support or opposition of this rule 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:

Types and sizes of vessels vary greatly and new styles of vessels are coming onto our waters each year. There is a necessity to be flexible with types of vessels that do not fit into standard categories. This rule provides for additional safety equipment needed and some exceptions to required equipment for non-standard vessels. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
