Newly enacted Section 120.745, Florida Statutes (F.S.), requires agencies to undertake an enhanced review of the agency’s rules that replaces the biennial rule review normally required by Section 120.74, F.S. This process begins with each agency identifying any revenue rules (rules that fix an amount or provide for the collection of money), data collection rules (rules that require the submittal of documents or information), rules that can be repealed or amended to reduce economic impacts, and those rules that will require a more comprehensive economic review under the statute.
Agencies that cooperate with the Governor’s Office of Fiscal Accountability and Regulatory Reform (OFARR) in a review of the agency’s rules in a manner consistent with Executive Orders 11-01 and 11-72 are exempt from the full compliance economic rule review requirements set forth in Section 120.745, F.S., provided the agency identifies its data collection rules and revenue rules and the information becomes publicly available by December 1, 2011. The District is cooperating with OFARR and has identified all of its data collection rules and revenue rules for publication by OFARR.
As of December 1, 2011, the information and reports developed in this process are available to the public on the following Internet websites: myfloridalicense.com/rulereview/Rule-Review-Reports.html and floridahasarighttoknow.com
