Enhanced Biennial Rule Review Report
The 2011 Legislature enacted Section 120.745, Florida Statutes, which requires each agency to complete an enhanced biennial review of the agency’s existing rules. The Department is required to review each of its rules and determine whether the rule is a revenue rule or a data collection rule. Further, the department must identify each rule that meets the criteria for a Compliance Economic Review (CER).
