RE Recodification of SWFWMD Rules
Fred informed me that both Zane Leeper and Steve Nail have
suggested that the district repeal the 16J rules. Apparently,
they are concerned that submission of the 40D rules will not
repeal the 16J rules and two sets of rules will exist.
After reviewing Chapter 120 and discussing this, Tom and I
both agree that there is no need for repeal. The notices of
the recodification that ran in the February 8 issue of the
Florida Administrative Weekly specifically state that the
purpose of the amendments is to renumber and recodify the
rules from Chapter 16 to Chapter 40. The text of the rules
that were submitted to the Bureau of Administrative Code
contains references to the previous 16J numbers. There thus
appears to be adequate notice that the 16J rules are no
longer in effect once the 40D rules took effect.
If you do not concur, please let me know what steps we need
to take to repeal the 16J rules.
