Pamela J. Bernard, General Counsel

This is the 1999-2000 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

January 25
Send Notice of Rule Development Workshop to The Gainesville Sun

January 28
Publication in The Gainesville Sun of Notice of Rule Development Workshop

February 16
Rule Development Workshop (if requested)

February 25
Send Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to The Gainesville Sun

March 1
Publication in The Gainesville Sun of Notice of Proposed Rulemaking; submission of proposed rules to Joint Administrative Procedures Committee

March 15
Publish Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in The Alligator

March 23
Public hearing (if requested)

April 7
Deadline for rules to be filed with the Department of State

May 1
Effective date (possible)

The effective date is subject to change due to questions or concerns about a rule that may be raised by the Joint Administrative Procedures Committee. As this Committee may question any portion of a rule submitted for amendment, it is important that the entire rule be reviewed for consistency with current practice prior to its submission to this office.

If you submit any proposed changes after January 4th, it is unlikely they will make the 1999-2000 rulemaking cycle but we will include them in the 2000-2001 cycle.

Please distribute this memorandum as appropriate to those in your units responsible for rulemaking. If you have questions, please contact Rebecca Holt at 392-1358 or at rholt@aa.ufl.edu.
