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 26-1-15 authorizes the Executive Director of the Department of Health to accept federal funding to operate the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program in Utah. 7 CFR part 246 is the set of federal regulations under which the Utah WIC program operates, and these regulations require that Utah implement state specific policies to operate the program.

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

Comments were requested from the Utah Association of WIC Administrators (UAWA), the WIC Advisory Council, and the health officers of the local health departments in regards to the five-year review of this rule. No comments favoring or opposing continuation of this rule were received.

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

This rule was reviewed and amended during 2011 and is current and accurate. This rule is needed to regulate the administration of the WIC program within the local health departments and outlines how public comments are accepted regarding the details of the WIC State Plan and the Policy and Procedures Manual. This rule also outlines how local grocery retailers under contract with the WIC program can redeem WIC checks. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
