S.B. 240 Passed; Removes Obsolete Language from Rulemaking Act

Senate Bill 240 (2012) has passed.  As it related to rulemaking, Section 3 of S.B. 240 removes Subsection 63G-3-305(10) from the Rulemaking Act.  Back in 1997, this language provided a grandfather clause that gave the then-newly-created Department of Workforce Services and the Labor Commission extra time to comply with the Rulemaking Act’s five-year review requirements.  This language was simply obsolete.  It had not been declared unconstitutional, as was represented on the floor during debate.

More information about S.B. 240 (2012) is available on the Legislature’s web site at http://le.utah.gov/~2012/htmdoc/sbillhtm/sb0240s01.htm .
