PROPOSALS

AGENCY: 02-385 - Manufactured Housing Board
RULE TITLE OR SUBJECT: Ch. 340, Licensing – Licenses: Extension of insurance requirement to all manufactured housing licensees; proof of insurance required annually
PROPOSED RULE NUMBER: 2005-P24
CONCISE SUMMARY: Effective August 16, 2000, Ch. 340 of the board's rules required manufacturers, dealers, installers and mechanics to provide proof of workers' compensation insurance and products/completed operations liability insurance in order to receive a license from the board. The proposed amendments extend the insurance requirement to current licensees who were originally licensed prior to August 16, 2000 and thus, to the entire licensee pool. The purpose of the extension is to provide the financial protection secured by the insurance requirement to all purchasers of Maine manufactured housing, regardless of when the manufacturer, dealer, installer or mechanic on the other side of the transaction was initially licensed in this State. To ensure that licensees maintain the policies in force on an ongoing basis, the proposed amendments require licensees to provide proof of continuing coverage annually.
These amendments also remove provisions establishing license fees from this chapter. This removal reflects the statutory transfer of fee-setting authority from the board to the Director of the Office of Licensing and Registration. The license fees themselves are unchanged.
THIS RULE WILL NOT HAVE A FISCAL IMPACT ON MUNICIPALITIES.

AGENCY: 04-058 - Department of Conservation, Bureau of Forestry (Maine Forest Service)
RULE TITLE OR SUBJECT: Ch. 21, Statewide standards for timber harvesting and related activities in shoreland areas
PROPOSED RULE NUMBER: 2005-P25
CONCISE SUMMARY: This rule establishes statewide standards for timber harvesting and related activities in shoreland areas. In general, timber harvesting activities in shoreland areas must protect shoreline integrity and not expose mineral soil that can be washed into water bodies, including nonforested freshwater and coastal wetlands and tidal waters. Timber harvesting and related activities in shoreland areas below the 300 acre drainage point must leave windfirm stands of trees that provide adequate shade. If located in shoreland areas, roads used primarily for timber harvesting and related activities must be constructed and maintained to standards designed to minimize the chance of exposed soil washing into water bodies, including wetlands. Stream crossings must not disrupt the natural flow of water and must not allow sediment into water bodies.
THIS RULE WILL NOT HAVE A FISCAL IMPACT ON MUNICIPALITIES.

AGENCY: 06-096 - Department of Environmental Protection
RULE TITLE OR SUBJECT:
Ch. 143, New Source Performance Standards (NSPS)
Ch. 144, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPS)
PROPOSED RULE NUMBER: 2005-P26 and 2005-P27
CONCISE SUMMARY: The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 offer states the option of accepting delegation for NSPS and NESHAPS federal requirements for incorporation into the states regulatory programs to streamline the air emission licensing processes. All standards will be implemented through the air emission licensing process.
EPA requires that the states adopt standards that are at least as stringent as federal regulations, in order to maintain approval of the Title V permitting program. With the 1990 CAAA, the delegation of newly promulgated and revised National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air pollutants now requires a more complex delegation/submittal process than those delegated in the past.
The DEP is proposing to incorporate all new and amended NSPS and NESHAPS that have been added between July 1, 2001 and July 1, 2004, in accordance with the State Administrative Procedure Act (MAPA) process. This will ensure the State has full implementation and enforcement authority through the State's Title V licensing process. The proposed chapters incorporate standards for a variety of source categories (both large and small businesses) that are subject to the federal standards.
The Board further solicits testimony on the proposed Hazardous Air Pollutant regulations and:
* Any health risk assessment on the pollutants proposed to be controlled that has been conducted by the Department of Human Services;
* The extent to which the public is exposed to the HAPs;
* The availability, effectiveness and cost of any air pollution control apparatus designed to prevent or control the emissions of the HAPs; and
* Any other information that would assist the Board in establishing standards adequate to protect the public health and safety.
Copies of these rules are available upon request by contacting the Agency contact person listed below. Pursuant to Maine law, interested parties must be publicly notified of the proposed rulemaking, the public hearing and be provided an opportunity for comment. Any party interested in providing public comment can testify at the public hearing or provide written comments before the end of the comment period. All comments should be sent to the Agency Contact person.
THIS RULE WILL NOT HAVE A FISCAL IMPACT ON MUNICIPALITIES.

AGENCY: 04-061 - Department of Conservation, Land Use Regulation Commission

PROPOSED RULE NUMBER: 2005-P28

Dock Standards: These proposed changes clarify that reconstruction of preexisting docks are allowed by permit but that new or expanded docks would be allowed only by special exception with provisions established for determining special exceptions.

AGENCY: 03-201 - Maine Department of Corrections
CHAPTER NUMBER AND RULE TITLE: Ch. 1, Detention and Correctional Standards for Counties and Municipalities
PROPOSED RULE NUMBER: 2005-P29

AGENCY: 10-144 - Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Medical Services
RULE TITLE OR SUBJECT: Proposed Rule: Maine State Service Manual, Ch. 104 Sections 2 and 3, Maine Drugs for the Elderly (DEL) Benefit and Maine Rx Plus Benefit
PROPOSED RULE NUMBER: 2005-P30
CONCISE SUMMARY: For both benefits, the proposed rules will expand the rural pharmacy incentive payment to allow pharmacies not located in rural areas, but serving large numbers of MaineRx+ and/or DEL participants residing in rural areas, to obtain the incentive payment. Under these rules as proposed, the Department may issue a contract for the provision of generic drugs and require pharmacy providers to obtain such drugs from the supplier under contract with the Department. The proposed rule changes will add a description of telepharmacy, an alternative method of delivering drugs dispensed by pharmacies to members at remote locations. The proposed rules will prohibit mail order pharmacies from automatically refilling prescriptions Without the request of the participant. There are additional proposed changes for the DEL benefit only. For the DEL benefit, the Department proposes to increase by $1 the copayment for mail order prescriptions, to a total of 20% plus $2 of the reimbursement amount. This change makes the copayment consistent with DEL legislative statute. The proposed DEL rule also clarifies exemptions from prior authorization requirements for the DEL benefit.

Definitions of each species of oyster would be added and this chapter would be generalized by removing the term “European” from the chapter title.
