The Delaware Harness Racing Commission (DHRC) pursuant to 3 Del.C. §10005, proposes to amend its rules and regulations. The proposed regulation changes address needed amendments to the "racing conditions" thereby allowing additional conditions and more racing opportunities for Delaware horsemen, reference 6.2.2.
After discussions, which included technical experts, regulatory officials, and harness racing stakeholders, on August 2, 2017, the DHRC Rules Committee voted to recommend this rule amendment package to the full DHRC. On August 8, 2017, at its regular monthly meeting, the DHRC unanimously approved these proposed amendments. The DHRC rules committee meetings and DHRC regular monthly meetings are publically noticed open meetings. Subsequent to a 30-day comment period from October 1 to 31, 2017 and notice in the Register of Regulations, the DHRC plans to finalize the regulations on November 14, 2017 during its regularly scheduled monthly meeting. The meetings are held at the Delaware Department of Agriculture, 2320 South DuPont Highway Dover, DE at 10:00am. Written comments must be received by COB October 31, 2017. Those comments should be sent to the same address listed above for meeting location, attention Mr. Mark Davis.
The purpose of the proposed amendment to Regulation 1801 is to add new subsection 4.5. This new subsection puts filers of reporting forms on notice that any statement submitted to the Department pursuant to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Insurance Holding Company System Regulatory Act, 18 Del.C. Ch. 50, should not be considered “filed” until the Commissioner of the Department of Insurance determines that the statement is complete. The Department is also making edits to Section 8.0, Definitions, to comport with the Delaware Administrative Code Drafting and Style Manual.
1123 Standards of Performance for Steel Plants: Electric Arc Furnaces
The purpose of this action is to repeal 7 DE Admin Code 1123, pursuant to an HB-147 review. This regulation currently applies to no source in Delaware and other more restrictive State and Federal requirements would apply should a new electric arc furnace be constructed in the future.
7 DE Admin Code 1136 adopts the federal acid rain regulations by reference. Pursuant to an HB-147 review DNREC has determined that there have been a number of updates to portions of 40 CFR Parts 72 -78 (Acid Rain Program provisions) that should be adopted. The purpose of this action is to update 7 DE Admin. Code 1136 to adopt the current federal requirements.
On December 1, 2013, Delaware adopted California's Low Emission Vehicle III standard and the Greenhouse Gas standard into 7 DE Admin Code 1140. On August 30, 2014, Delaware submitted 7 DE Admin Code 1140, requesting the EPA to incorporate this updated version of Delaware's low emission vehicle program into Delaware's State Implementation Plan (SIP). The EPA approved Delaware's low emission vehicle program SIP revision on October 14, 2015. California has subsequently revised 14 sections in those standards that Delaware incorporated by reference on December 1, 2013.
The purpose of this action is to update the adoption by reference of those 14 California sections in 7 DE Admin Code 1140 to ensure that Delaware's standards remained identical to the EPA approved California standards, as mandated in Section 177.
The purpose of the proposed revisions is to bring the regulations into compliance with current federal requirements, as determined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA issued the Revisions to the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Regulations for Class V Injection Wells, effective April 2000 and December 2011. With this, the State of Delaware Regulations Governing Underground Injection Control is to be amended. The revised State regulations will also expand the existing regulations to include additional requirements for multiple water management activities. The regulations were published in the May 1, 2017, Delaware Register of Regulations and a public hearing was held on May 25, 2017. As a result of additional review and comments received, changes were made to the initial proposed UIC regulations. Since changes were made by the Department subsequent to the hearing record having closed for public comment, the decision was made to republish this revised proposed regulation and to reopen the public comment period for an additional 30 days to provide complete transparency to the public.
The hearing record on the proposed changes to State of Delaware Regulations Governing Underground Injection Control will be re-opened October 1, 2017 for a 30-day public comment period ending at the close of business on October 31, 2017. Individuals may submit written comments regarding the proposed changes via e-mail to or via the USPS to Lisa Vest, Hearing Officer, DNREC, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901 (302) 739-9042.
