1997 Call for Rulemaking
Pamela J. Bernard, General Counsel
This is the 1997 call for rulemaking. If you or those in your units wish to make changes to University of Florida rules as found in the Florida Administrative Code, please submit to this office the proposed revisions with specific additions or deletions noted as well as a summary of why this rule needs to be changed. The respective Vice President for the unit should approve the changes before they are sent to us. We will review the changes for legal form and sufficiency, as well as consistency with other BOR and university rules, place the changes in rule format, draft notices, economic impact statements, justifications, and other supporting documents. We will obtain final approvals from the President, Provost, Vice Provst and Vice Presidents. Here is the timetable:
|January 31||Deans, directors and department chairs must submit proposed changes to the Office of the General Counsel|
|February 21||Office of the General Counsel must have rules in final form for delivery to The Gainesville Sun|
|February 27||Publication in The Gainesville Sun|
|March 20||Public Hearing|
|April 7||Deadline for rules to be filed with the Department of State|
|May 1||Rules effective date|
If you submit any proposed changes after January 31st, it is unlikely they will make the 1997 rulemaking cycle but we will include them in the 1998 cycle.
Please distribute this memorandum as appropriate to those in your units responsible for rulemaking.
