In compliance with the State's Administrative Procedures Act (APA - Title 29, Chapter 101 of the Delaware Code) and under the authority of Title 31 of the Delaware Code, Chapter 5, Section 512, Delaware Health and Social Services (DHSS) / Division of Social Services is proposing to amend policies in the Division of Social Services Manual (DSSM) regarding Case Administration, including, Definitions; Treating Clients with Courtesy; Keeping Client Information Confidential; Safeguarding Case Records; Compiling and Saving Case Record Contents; Guaranteeing Civil Rights and Non-Discrimination; Making Civil Rights Complaints; and, Providing Policy Information.
This action is to consider amending the summer flounder (Paralichthys dentatus) regulation, with possible changes to the season and minimum size limit.
This action proposes the addition of a new section in the Tidal Finfish regulations (7 Del.C. §3500) to include definitions and measures to control the proliferation of invasive finfish in Delaware’s tidal waters (§3545 Invasive Finfish). Snakehead fish, blue catfish, flathead catfish, walking catfish and grass carp are invasive finfish species likely to cause environmental and economic harm. This action proposes to: formally designate these fish as invasive finfish species; prohibit the stocking, possession, purchase, transport or sale of live invasive finfish; and specify fishing equipment and methods to take invasive finfish species.
Blue catfish (Ictalurus furcatus) and flathead catfish (Pylodictis olivaris) are native to the Mississippi River drainage. Flathead catfish have already been reported in Delaware’s tidal waters and blue catfish have been found in adjoining states with shared waters. Both species function as top-level predators with broad diets, attain large sizes and are salinity tolerant. The introduction of these species in nearby states contributed to the extirpation of native ictalurid species such as white catfish and bullheads through competition and predation.
Grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella), a native to Asia, feed on submerged aquatic vegetation. When adequately controlled, through barriers and sterility, this species can be an effective tool at controlling nuisance aquatic vegetation. Uncontrolled, the species can denude large expanses of beneficial submerged aquatic vegetation. Submerged aquatic vegetation is valuable spawning, nursery and foraging habitat for native centrarchids and other aquatic species. The removal of submerged aquatic vegetation often leads to increased phytoplankton and diminished water quality.
Snakehead fish, blue catfish, flathead catfish, walking catfish and grass carp are invasive finfish species whose introduction or proliferation are likely to cause economic and/or environmental harm to Delaware’s tidal waters. The proposed action will assist in preventing the introduction or proliferation of these invasive fishes in Delaware.
One proposed amendment is to Rule 3.10 in 10 DE Admin. Code 101. The amendment would clarify how the value of certain prizes is determined.
Another proposed amendment is to Rule 4.11 in 10 DE Admin. Code 101. The amendment would provide that when there are multiple winners in a game, the organization may in its own house rules determine how one winner will be declared.
The Delaware Council on Real Estate Appraisers, pursuant to 24 Del.C. §4006(a)(1), proposes to revise its rules and regulations. The majority of the proposed revisions to the rules are changes required to come into compliance with the new AQB criteria, additional changes remove the requirement of pre-certification examination for assessors, lower the acceptable late renewal time period from twelve months to sixty days for all licensees and certificate holders.
