Editor's Note: Correction to the Amendment on Rule R710-9, DAR No. 35296, in the October 15, 2011, Bulletin

After publication of the October 15, 2011, issue of the Utah State Bulletin, the Division of Administrative Rules became aware of a problem with the rule text published as part of the Notice of Proposed Rule for Rule R710-9 (DAR No. 35296) on page 39. Specifically, in Section R710-9-11, the word " glycerin" which already exists in the text of the effective rule was not printed in subsections 11.1, 11.2, and 11.3. The complete, properly marked text was filed with the Division by the State Fire Marshal's Office. As near as the Division has been able to determine, the omission in the PDF edition of the Bulletin was caused by a sequence of codes used to mark the text to show amendments. This sequence of codes appears to have been misinterpreted by the software the Division uses to produce the Bulletin.

This error affects only the PDF publication. The web publication of the rule is correct (see http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/bulletin/2011/20111015/35296.htm).

The text filed with the Division appears below:
