502 Delaware Standardbred Breeders’ Fund Regulations
The State of Delaware, Department of Agriculture’s Standardbred Breeders’ Fund (“the Fund”) hereby gives notice of its intention to adopt an amended regulation pursuant to the General Assembly’s delegation of authority to do so found at 29 Del.C. §4815(b)(4)b.2 and in compliance with Delaware’s Administrative Procedures Act at 29 Del.C. §10115. The proposed amended regulations under 4.2, 9.2,13.7, and 14.5 address the fiduciary responsibility of "the Fund" to sustain the program into the future while maintaining the current status.
The Fund solicits, and will consider, timely filed written comments from interested individuals and groups concerning these proposed amended regulations. The deadline for the filing of such written comments will be thirty days (30) after these proposed amended regulations are promulgated in the Delaware Register of Regulations. Any such submissions should be mailed or hand-delivered to Ms. Judy Davis-Wilson, Administrator, Delaware Standardbred Breeders' Fund Program whose address is State of Delaware, Department of Agriculture, 2320 South DuPont Highway, Dover, Delaware 19901 by October 2, 2017.
The Delaware Nutrient Management Commission, pursuant to 3 Del.C. §2220(a), proposes to revise its regulations incorporating by reference the State Technical Standards developed by an appointed committee to establish appropriate standards for nutrient application, development and implementation of nutrient management and animal waste management plans, compliance with CAFO permits, and siting new CAFO facilities. The State Technical Standards can be viewed in person at the Delaware Department of Agriculture or online at http://dda.delaware.gov/nutrients/NM_TechStandards.shtml.
The text of the proposed amendment appears below and can also be viewed at the Delaware In-surance Commissioner's website at http://insurance.delaware.gov/information/proposedregs/. The Department of Insurance does not plan to hold a public hearing on the proposed regulation. The Department's Docket number is 3575-2017.
The Department of Insurance (Department) hereby gives notice of proposed amendment to existing Regulation 1301, Internal Review and Independent Utilization Review of Health Insurance Claims. The proposed regulatory amendments to the definition of "Authorized Representative" and to the content of the notice to be provided by carriers to their insureds and codified in Section 4 of this regulation, implement HB 100, which amends 18 Del.C. §332 to now require that an insurance carrier, when informing a covered person of its internal review process, must inform the covered person of the availability of legal assistance from attorneys working for the Delaware Department of Justice in the preparation of an appeal of an adverse determination involving treatment for substance abuse. HB 100 was signed into law on May 30, 2017, becomes effective on September 27, 2017 and sunsets on January 1, 2020 unless expressly reauthorized prior to that date. Published elsewhere in this volume of the Register of Regulations is a proposal to amend Regulation 1315 to also implement HB 100.
The Department of Insurance (Department) hereby gives notice of a proposed amendment to the definition of "Authorized Representative" codified in existing Regulation 1315, Arbitration of Health Insurance Disputes Between Individuals and Carriers. The proposed amendment implements HB 100, which amends 18 Del.C. §332 to now require that an insurance carrier, when informing a covered person of its internal review process, must inform the covered person of the availability of legal assistance from attorneys working for the Delaware Department of Justice in the preparation of an appeal of an adverse determination involving treatment for substance abuse. HB 100 was signed into law on May 30, 2017, becomes effective on September 27, 2017 and sunsets on January 1, 2020 unless expressly reauthorized prior to that date. Published elsewhere in this volume of the Register of Regulations is a proposal to also amend Regulation 1301 to implement HB 100.
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 September 1, 2017 for a 30-day public comment period ending at the close of business on October 2, 2017. Individuals may submit written comments regarding the proposed changes via e-mail to Lisa.Vest@state.de.us or via the USPS to Lisa Vest, Hearing Officer, DNREC, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901 (302) 739-9042.
