1998-99 Call for Rulemaking
Pamela J. Bernard, General Counsel
This is the 1998-99 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. 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 Provost and Vice Presidents. The timetable is as follows:
January 4 Deans, directors and department chairs must submit proposed rule changes to the Office of the General Counsel February 4 Send Notice of Rule Development Workshop to The Gainesville Sun February 8 Publication in The Gainesville Sun of Notice of Rule Development Workshop February 22 Rule Development Workshop (if requested) February 26 Send Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to The Gainesville Sun March 2 Publication in The Gainesville Sun of Notice of Proposed Rulemaking March 24 Publish Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in The Alligator March 29 Public hearing (if requested) April 12 Deadline for rules to be filed with the Department of State May 1 Effective date
If you submit any proposed changes after January 4th, it is unlikely they will make the 1998-99 rulemaking cycle but we will include them in the 1999-2000 cycle.
Please distribute this memorandum as appropriate to those in your units responsible for rulemaking.
