1 DE Admin. Code 477
The Delaware Economic Development Office (DEDO) conducted public hearings in Kent, New Castle and Sussex counties as part of the Governor's Executive Order 36 designed to re-assess the need for the agency's regulations. Based on the public hearings and internal agency review of its regulations, DEDO proposes that Title 1, Section 477 (Information Technology Training Grant Program), 5 DE Reg. 2145 (5/1/02), should be deleted from the administrative code for administrative efficiency. The Delaware Economic Development Authority (the "Authority") and DEDO are authorized to prescribe such regulations as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of the act creating the Authority, 29 Del.C. Ch. 50 (the "Act"). Having provided due public notice, the Authority does not adopt the attached repeal of the Regulation as published in the November 1, 2016 edition of the Delaware Register of Regulations for the reasons that follow.
4. The proposed repeal of the Regulation was published in the Register of Regulations on November 1, 2016. For a period of thirty (30) days following publication, the public had the opportunity to offer written comment.
3. DEDO concludes that Title 1, Section 477 (Information Technology Training Grant Program), 5 DE Reg. 2145 (5/1/02) should be maintained because the program is still operative and the Regulation provides constructive guidance to any participants.
4. The authority to reject repeal of this Regulation is found in 29 Del.C. §5005(11), 5053(k) and the Delaware Administrative Procedures Act, 29 Del.C. Ch. 101.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 5th day of January 2017 by the Delaware Economic Development Authority.
