(Annual Rules - 07/24/2007)
The department has decided to cancel the public hearing on the proposed rule that was scheduled for July 25, 2007, 6:00 p.m. After publishing notice of hearing, the department found that amending ARM 12.3.403, Replacement Licenses, to align with the new replacement license policy would be less confusing and less complicated than adopting a new rule. Therefore the department has decided not to enact a new rule as originally proposed. Instead the department is proposing to amend ARM 12.3.403 to incorporate the new replacement license policy. MAR Notice No. 12-332, the Notice of Public Hearing on the rule amendment can be found on this website.
