In the interest of promoting uniformity of interpretation and consistency of application between Montana and the other states, the department has adopted, with minor modifications, the model rule language promulgated by the interstate conference of employment security agencies. The duties and responsibilities imposed by this subchapter are binding only on the state of Montana in its role as a requesting state or a recovering state.
